1️⃣ A short history of GraphQL at Coursera [Sehran Hasanli]
Join us to learn about Coursera’s journey adopting GraphQL. We’ll be giving a brief introduction to GraphQL, both basics and more advanced concepts, as well as explaining how we use it in our applications. Grab a cup of coffee and join our virtual session to get insights into how we query our APIs!
2️⃣ An Introduction and Review of React Hooks [Peter MacMillan]
Hooks are an exciting new part of React that empower function-based components with the full React lifecycle. We’ll examine a few of the most exciting hooks, how they compare with older approaches, and how to start using them in your applications.
3️⃣ Product data flows: from user input to analytics [Feng Jiang]
Learn how user input turns into insight. This talk will give you an overview of how data is flowing through a typical enterprise application system, from front end user input all the way to the data storage and eventually becomes insights. You might have been hearing about terms like data warehouse, ETL, data lake, etc, this session will give you a general idea of where and how each operates as part of the entire data flow.
4️⃣ Divide and Conquer with a Distributed Team [Brandon Tram]
Distributed teams are groups of coworkers who work remotely, either nearby or far away. They may work in the same city, but from home or internationally, in the same time zone or a different one. Join me as we explore the ins-and-outs of working with distributed teams, as we dive deep into Coursera’s initial efforts to expand to an international workforce.
