Shopify has adopted GraphQL for almost all services in the company. With GraphQL, clients craft queries and get back only what they requested, everything is typed and everything you want to expose is part of a schema. The days of not knowing what fields are accepted by what endpoint are over. In this talk, we will go through the basics of GraphQL and we will also take a look at Apollo for Android.

Exciting times for mixed reality enthusiasts. With many AR and VR platforms now available, we're witnessing the birth of a new medium. In many ways, this boom is similar to the personal computer revolution of the 70s and 80s. People are wondering: "Besides games, what are these gadgets good for, anyway?" In this session, we'll see how people are using mixed reality for social good. Then, we'll learn about the Android Thing, Ar.js and the Daydream VR platform. We'll see how you can use these and other platforms to build your own community projects.
