19:30-20:00 githubql - a Go Client for GitHub GraphQL API / Dmitri Shuralyov

githubql was the first Go client library for a GraphQL API (as far as I know). Creating it required answering questions like: What does a Go client for GraphQL look like? Is it even possible? What is a good API design? This talk will describe the thought process, decisions made, and trade-offs encountered. As featured in the Golang Weekly newsletter ( https://golangweekly.com/issues/162 ).
