Event description
Learn about securing your GraphQL APIs with JSON Web Tokens (JWT) at this event featuring Sam Julien.

About this Event

Are you confused about how authentication and authorization relate to GraphQL APIs? You’re not alone! It’s no secret that learning auth is hard on its own, let alone on top of GraphQL. In this talk, Sam will show how to demystify auth while learning how to use JSON Web Tokens (JWTs) with GraphQL APIs! After discovering why controlling access to APIs is so challenging and ways that can be used to solve it, Sam will step through how to handle authorization in the GraphQL server. This talk will use JavaScript examples, but the principles will apply to other tech. By the end, you’ll feel a whole lot better about tackling auth in GraphQL!
