GraphQL and When to Use It
Software Engineering, Frontend, Backend
If you have never used GraphQL before, you probably think that it is just another buzzword that will be forgotten in a few years. You might think: "Why do I need to learn a new way to write APIs when REST already answers all my needs?". Or, you are excited to learn something new but don't believe GraphQL is mature enough for production.
In this short talk, I will remind you of some of the pain points you have probably experienced when using REST. I will then explain what GraphQL is and how it solves these pain points. Next, I will demonstrate what a GraphQL web application looks like when using TypeScript. Finally, I will discuss the problems I encountered when using GraphQL. By the end of this talk, you will understand why GraphQL is here to stay.
