GraphQL - Industry insights on the rise of the supergraph

Exploring what we’ve learned from hundreds of organizations transforming their business and customer experiences with GraphQL & the supergraph.

In his talk and Q&A session, Dan Boerner will share insights and best practices from his experience working with hundreds of companies working to unblock their teams and backlogs with the supergraph—a new layer of the stack. He’ll share real-world examples to explore why GraphQL and its architectural advantages must be coupled with leadership, vision, team empowerment, and mindset shifts to truly transform the way enterprises build, deliver and organize themselves to create digital products. As Apollo’s Graph Champion, Dan leads Apollo’s community of 800+ GraphQL leaders from 350 companies. Before joining Apollo, Dan led Expedia Group’s effort to radically accelerate the delivery of improved customer experiences with a company-wide supergraph.

Dan is passionate about helping graph champions harness the transformative power of the supergraph to improve product development and digital customer experiences. At Apollo, he leads a community of hundreds of GraphQL champions working to drive transformation within their organizations. He joined Apollo after a long tenure at Expedia Group where he led the effort to create a company-wide supergraph transforming product development and delivery, and enabling the organization to roll out their new trips platform in 1 year instead of 3.
