GraphQL -- Flexible APIs for Adaptive Clients

September 26th 2017 @ 11:00 pm

REST is dead!  Long live GraphQL!  (Just kidding… this isn’t a zero-sum game). As the proliferation of clients emerge (Android, IOS, Web, etc), we are learning that REST does have some limitations, and you’ve probably seen them first-hand.  GraphQL, by FaceBook, is an attempt to fix the limitations of REST by allowing the client to specify the data it needs via a single endpoint. Servers can expose any data from any source via a typed interface, and clients can gain the freedom to ask for exactly the data they need without over-fetching. In this session we will discuss the limitations of REST, the power of GraphQL, and some implementations. We’ll discuss some best practices, and the tooling that has emerged in this space to make your developer experience top-notch.

Presented by: Brian Genisio
