While discussing the #GraphQLJanuary that is ongoing with a friend, we began discussing how (in 2020) the shifting world situation had changed the way that people do business. I found myself saying: “Companies that had developers on staff (internal) were able to deliver new workflows in reaction on the challenges” and…in a moment…I knew that I had heard that assertion somewhere before.

In October of last year, Hasura held a conference entitled ‘Enterprise GraphQL Conference’ and one of the sessions…

Our #GraphQLJanuary continues with blog posts, live streams, Discord Q&A, office hours, and more. For a schedule of upcoming events, join the community or register at In this post, Hasura engineer Toan shares his experience with using Hasura alongside TimescaleDB 2.0 and exploring what works…and what doesn’t. Learning from the experience of others exploring workarounds to achieve their goals is always instructive.

TimescaleDB is an open-source database designed to make SQL scalable for time-series data. The most valuable features of TimescaleDB is hypertable, a high-level table that provides automatic partitioning across time and space (partitioning key).

TimescaleDB 2.0 is a major version upgrade that has many improvements from version 1. It introduces new interesting features and capabilities, especially horizontal multi-node scaling that can solve the limitation of write performance. …

GraphQL Asia is the largest gathering of GraphQL enthusiasts across Asia…and, now, it is online.

On the 24th and 25th of February, the third edition of GraphQL Asia is occurring. It has, and remains, deeply important to the Hasura team to ensure that there is a regional conference discussing the successes, challenges, and providing education material about GraphQL in Asia.

To make good on our vision, we are having several talks this year in multiple Asian languages. It is, as of today, somewhat unclear how we will handle live translation to English. But, the only benefit of an online event is that most talks are pre-recorded. …

Any learning journey you undertake, be it technical or otherwise, should usually start with exploring the fundamentals (check out today’s stream on Twitch for more) and then quickly followed with a bit of archaeology. Understanding the recent history of a project can help ensure that you have context.

Context for expanding on your base of knowledge.
Context for what technical decisions are made.
Context for how you will build your solution.

Recently, Praveen streamed a retrospective (I like to think of it as an archaeological survey) of 2020 for Hasura. That video is embedded below. …

In our blog post titled ‘ GraphLQ January with Hasura ‘ we shared plans for a month of content focused on learning, expanding, and exploring GraphQL. We believe, strongly, that GraphQL will continue to be a key skill for developers (of all types) to learn. And, of course, we believe that Hasura has some interesting, and unique, approaches to GraphQL implementation and allows you to unlock your data.

The plans, as laid out in the prior blog post, remain the same. But, some housekeeping is in order.

For the Live Q&A, we will be hosting this in the #general channel of the Hasura Community Discord weekly on Wednesdays. …

As 2020 draws to a close, everyone at Hasura finds themselves preparing for 2021. For some, last minute holiday plans, for others budgets and hiring, for all of us…a series of lengthy conversations about you, our users (or those yet to become).

We believe, strongly, that GraphQL will continue to become a key skill for developers (of all types) to learn, understand, and explore over the next year.

With that in mind, we are pleased to announce:

GraphQL January with Hasura — #GraphQLJanuary

Beginning 11 January 2021, the team at Hasura will be providing you with a wide variety of content, tutorials, streams, and more with which you can expand your GraphQL familiarity and start your adoption journey. …

From SWR’s github repo:

The name “SWR” is derived from stale-while-revalidate, a cache invalidation strategy popularized by HTTP RFC 5861. SWR first returns the data from cache (stale), then sends the fetch request (revalidate), and finally comes with the up-to-date data again.

GraphQL requests are just HTTP POST requests with a JSON payload at the end of the day. It doesn’t need the typical setup overhead for data fetching. Popular GraphQL clients have made it look slightly complicated than a normal fetch request counterpart, but for added benefits like caching.

The SWR API is simple and looks like the one…

“Community is core to the identity of Hasura. We are the kind of people for whom open-source makes sense.”

We’ve written this before. It still holds true.
