With RedisConf2020 done and dusted, my next stop is API Days Helsinki 2020. Like RedisConf, this is a conference that got its plans a little messed up by COVID19. Instead of the originally planned conference, they’re doing a virtual event in June, and (hopefully) a physical one in September.
I’m going to be presenting a session on OData on 2nd June, during the virtual event. If you haven’t heard about it before, you can think of it as something that tried to solve similar problems to what GraphQL did, but much earlier. GraphQL is not OData, as some will be quite willing to point out, and I’ll be explaining some of the tradeoffs between the two.
RedisConf 2020 was originally planned to be held in San Francisco. The sudden spread of the COVID19 pandemic, however, meant that the organisers, like many others, had to take a step back and reconsider whether and how to run this event. In fact, the decision was taken in March for it to be held as a virtual event.
RedisConf 2020 will thus be an online conference taking place on the 12th and 13th of May 2020. The schedule is packed with talks, the first day being breakout sessions, and the second being full of training provided by the folks at Redis Labs.
Among the talks presented on the first day, you’ll find my own A Practical Introduction to RedisGraph, which introduces the relatively new RedisGraph graph database, and demonstrates what you can do with it via practical demonstration.
