Better APIs with GraphQL
YOW! 2017 Sydney
GraphQL has been out in the wild for nearly 2.5 years now. For such a relatively young API technology, GraphQL has won hearts and minds and it's being used in some rather unexpected places. The Community has grown rapidly and created a rich ecosystem of extremely useful tooling.
Josh will present a quick introduction to the basics of GraphQL as well as a high-level overview of the GraphQL ecosystem. He'll also describe some of the benefits of using GraphQL in your API layer, bust some myths around what it is and what it isn't, as well as some of the ways you can get started with GraphQL easily in your projects.
