The WFS 3 specification introduces a number of significant changes in the protocol
compared to older versions, to mention just a few:

* Small core with basic functionality, extra functionality provided by extensions
* OpenAPI/RESTful based
* GeoJSON first, while still allowing serving data in GML
* No mandate to publish schemas for data

Come to this presentation to have a quick introduction to this new protocol version,
get updates on its implementation in GeoServer, and get a hint of how the protocol
is going to evolve in the future, also based on the June 2019 London OGC API hackaton.
