While the wider community is focused on blurring the lines between the server and client, GraphQL applications have been left behind. In this talk, Alec will present his attempt to change that: Houdini, a new application framework that blends GraphQL client, router, and bundler. An odd mix? Maybe. But with it comes the power of a GraphQL compiler, the latest in React's streaming capabilities, and a fresh take on client-side developer experience. Alec will introduce Houdini's basic APIs and demonstrate how it orchestrates your application’s data and asset needs.
