As real-time distribution mechanisms like Pub/Sub become commodified parts of application architectures, developers are discovering a need for more sophisticated functionality than just simple message delivery. Traditionally, developers and software architects have struggled with the complexities of creating event-driven, real-time web, mobile, and IoT applications. This is because they are not data “wrangling” experts. Data wrangling comprises mapping raw data into another format suitable for another purpose and is critical to event-driven application development. However, without the right tools, data wrangling can be a laborious task, as it typically involves restructuring of large amounts of data.

This talk explores the growing value of data-wrangling at the network edge, and how pragmatic, app-focused platforms like GraphQL mark the future of real-time data architectures.”
