React is changing the way we think about routing, rendering, and fetching in web applications. Features like React Server Components and Suspense can give us more granular control of when and where to fetch and render content for our routes. In this talk, we’ll explore how everything connects; and how React, Next.js, and Prisma makes it easier to manage the journey of your data, from table to pixel in just one repo.
Structuring data as normalized is the standard for relational databases. But who wants to be normal?? Let’s de-normalize our data, put it in documents, and get lightning fast reads in our applications! In this talk, you’ll learn different methods of storing data in a document database like MongoDB. There are tradeoffs between normalization and denormalization. One will give you faster reads but slower writes, and the other will get you slower reads and faster writes. Which is right for you? By the end of this talk, you’ll know!
Learn how Pothos and Prisma can create a delightful developer experience for building type-safe GraphQL APIs with great performance and type-safety without sacrificing flexibility and control over your API, or closely coupling your API to your database schema.
Together, we will dive into how we've used serverless technologies at Nuna to scale infinitely. We use the power of Prisma Data Proxy to talk to our serverless MongoDB database through our serverless NextJS API. And if our small team can do it, so can you!
The fixed-line Internet landscape in Canada is... not optimal. Competition is scarce, prices are high for average speeds and the NPS score in the industry is embarrassing. Now, what if I told you that modern web technologies, like GraphQL, Prisma, TypeScript, and a handful of developers can be a game-changer in this dreaded sector?
Prisma generates fantastic TypeScript types for clients. They include type system features such as conditional and mapped types to give precise types for the results of client method calls. This talk will cover how those foundational types work in TypeScript and the ways Prisma uses them. We'll also cover how to use them to extend Prisma's types for wrapper functions and other shenanigans I've seen consumers of Prisma need.
When Prisma releases new features, how do we make sure everyone can learn about them? In this talk, we’ll cover how Prisma’s docs and website teams work together with developers and the community to create our documentation.
Databases are foundational machinery in modern society. Mission-critical applications are built on Postgres and the Postgres community continues to strengthen Postgres to meet real-world demands. We believe Postgres will remain one of the most important (open-source) relational databases of our time. Neon is a serverless implementation of PostgreSQL. It’s an auto-scaling, on-demand database as a service for modern applications, making it a credible open-source alternative to Amazon Aurora. Neon’s key innovation is separation of storage and compute which makes Postgres cloud native and serverless. This allows for several advantages: Neon reduces the complexity involved in provisioning and managing database capacity, and scales up to support large databases or scales down when the database is not needed. Additionally, it allows efficient management of database resources.
Developers don't always tend to have the healthiest relationship with their databases. Design choices that, early on, can feel unimportant, tend to grow into monstrous scalability challenges down the line, and entire families of technologies have sprung up around the ability to avoid ever having to make changes to an old, inefficiently designed schema. But why do we keep falling into the same traps, and how can we avoid them? This talk will cover some of the key points to pay attention to in early relational database design, share some war stories around scaling up, and arm you with the knowledge and tools to designing a database that will scale along with your application's success.
Did you know that some SQL variants are Turing complete and let you write any program in SQL? Of course, no one's that crazy... But what are the limits of SQL? What are some crazy things we can do with it? I'm going to go over a few of them in this talk. It won't be only fun stuff, though! I'm going to show some more practical but lesser-known concepts too. Let's discover some hidden SQL traits together!
Prisma has seen rapid adoption in the developer community! We are excited about this and want to continue building world-class developer tools that make it easier for developers to work with databases. In this talk, you will see what kind of features we have on the roadmap for 2022 and beyond.
