Building a serverless GraphQL API in 10 Minutes (Node.js, DynamoDB, Lambda) [Remote Talk]

In this session, Sven will guide you through:
  1. Architecture of a serverless GraphQL API deployed on top of AWS cloud
  2. Monolithic Lambda vs. microservices lambda tradeoffs
  3. The easiest way to create a scalable GraphQL API using Node.js
    1. Infrastructure as Code using Pulumi
    2. Scaffolding a GraphQL API using webiny-cli
    3. Deploying and testing the API
  4. Adopting the "cloud native" development methodology

[The Speaker will present his talk live remotely and do a moderated Q&A session afterwards]
