DataLayer Exposed: Loren Sands-Ramshaw and All the Databases


Our series of DataLayer posts is nearing an end. Loren Sands-Ramshaw was the second-to-last presenter at Compose's DataLayer conference this year, presenting on all the databases.

Up next was Loren Sands-Ramshaw. Loren is the author of the upcoming GraphQL Guide and has worked to help maintain the Meteor framework and Apollo project. At DataLayer, Loren really got into his passion, talking about using all the databases with GraphQL. In his live coding session, Loren uses GraphQL to provide an API backed by five different data sources.

Loren references his article, Use All the Databases, in his talk which was published as part of the Compose Write Stuff program. Click to read part one and part two of his article.

Be sure to tell us what you think using hashtag #DataLayerConf and check back next Monday for the next talk at DataLayerConf.

We're in the planning stages for DataLayer 2018 right now so, if you have an idea for a talk, start fleshing that out. We'll have a CFP, followed by a blind submission review, and then select our speakers, who we'll fly to DataLayer to present. Sounds fun, right?
