What Could Go Wrong with a GraphQL Query and Can OpenTelemetry Help?

APIs are the building blocks of our modern world. As the world becomes more interconnected, we need reliable and performant APIs to ensure the best experience for our end users. Many developers are starting to use GraphQL to provide a monolithic facade on top of their complex microservice architecture. In turn, making their next-generation APIs fast, flexible, and developer-friendly.
But using GraphQL also introduces many new challenges when isolating failures and troubleshooting performance issues. Can OpenTelemetry help solve those challenges?

During this talk, we will:
1. Give a brief overview of OpenTelemetry as a technology
2. Investigate common challenges developers and SREs might encounter when running GraphQL in production
3. Explore how OpenTelemetry can help deal with these issues
4. Discuss what needs to be improved to make OTel even more valuable for the community

5 ways to accelerate your API Platform maturity

APIs and microservices are powering domain-driven design architectures and have become the fabric of modern cloud-native applications. However, focusing on technology isn't enough - there is a need for a synergy between people, processes, and tools.

Based on the API platform maturity model, we will look to bridge the gap between an org's current and your desired platform maturity level when creating cloud-native API platforms.

We'll discuss:
1. The platform team model - team topologies and key roles for developing internal API platforms
2. Processes like platform discovery, jobs-to-be-done analysis, and continuous feedback loops to understand and meet developer needs
3. Applying a "platform as a product" mindset to measure and communicate platform success
4. Architecting for discoverability, security, observability and integration capabilities
5. The role of technologies like service meshes, API gateway, identity management, internal developer portals and OpenAPI specifications
