GraphQL:

In a world where APIs and REST are the way that we can communicate with services, it can become an arduous task to get to the information you need.

For example if you look at a single tweet, obtained from Twitter's API, you will so a stack of information that you don't need! If only there was a way to query this data to get just what you need.
Enter Facebook's GraphQL language. A language specification that solves the same problem that SQL did for Relational Databases.
In this presentation, Mark Drew will go through the fundamentals of the Query Language, structure, use cases and how we can get started with graphQL endpoints.

Speaker Mark Drew is experienced Senior Web Applications Developer, Speaker and Author. Lateral thinker with many years commercial experience.
