The latest events have changed many aspects of our personal and business life. Technology has become more essential than ever in connecting people. As an adaptation to the new normal conferences are increasingly being organized online.

The GraphQL Community's thirst for knowledge knows no bounds so no wonder that more and more conferences are present online. One of them is GraphQL Asia 2021 edition organized by Hasura.

The conference

The conference takes place online on 24th & 25th Feb 2021 and anyone is free to join (no fee). This year's edition is already the third one and considering the quality speakers & talks that took place during the previous ones it is a must-have event in every GraphQL fan's calendar.

This year's cast looks super interesting including speakers from industry top companies including Dan Schafer, GraphQL Co-Creator from Facebook as well as people from IBM, Microsoft, Tesco, Hasura and many more. All experience in using GraphQL in enterprise-grade products and ready to share their thought on different aspects of it and its ecosystem.
