Open to anyone in the area who is interested in developing video games. In order to have a little structure, we'll try to do a couple things each week:

Introduce new members. What have you worked on, game related or not? What do you want to work on next?

Discuss this week's conversation starter. Some article, video or game that we can dig into a little.

Members can present any games they're working on, for feedback or just to brag.

Of course, it's all very informal. The main goal is interesting conversation(s) about our passion.

Looking forward to it!

Presented By: Mat Warger

Level: Introductory/Overview - those new to GraphQL or AWS AppSync

Description: GraphQL has proven to be a viable technology since its inception at Facebook, but is now going mainstream. It is a specification and toolset for querying your data in a structured way. But - how do you get started? In this session, you will get a soft introduction to GraphQL and see how it can change the way you think about your data. Using AppSync on AWS, you can get up and running with a GraphQL endpoint quickly and easily. You will see how it provides a flexible, self-documenting API that can serve as an efficient alternative to RESTful web services. No experience with GraphQL or AWS is necessary, but a general understanding of REST (and APIs in general) is a plus.

Agenda: Some basic lecture, followed by a demo-heavy walkthrough of the service and associated tools. By the end of the presentation, we'll have a GraphQL API built that authorizes queries based on user permissions, interacts with multiple data sources, and communicates with a sample application.

Food and networking at 6. Presentation to start close to 6:30.
