Event-driven API strategies: from WebHooks to GraphQL Subscriptions

Day 2 - 11th Dec 11:30-12:20 Hall 7 #CM Advanced Advanced

This talk explores different strategies to get around common constraints imposed by synchronous (request/response) APIs when it comes to supporting asynchronous and event-driven communication between server and clients thus avoiding inefficient and infective API pooling techniques.

Through a comprehensive architectural overview and a series of hands-on demonstrations, this presentation will illustrate how different asynchronous API strategies such as the above mentioned can be applied in order to deliver event-driven architectures in the web.
