In this API Craft Singapore Meetup, you will learn about building GraphQL APIs instantly with https://hasura.io!
We will start with a basic introduction to GraphQL, and will also discuss the advantages of GraphQL vis-a-vis REST.
--- Talk details ---
The Hasura GraphQL engine is an open source GraphQL server that gives you GraphQL APIs instantly over any Postgres database.
In this talk, we'll go over the design and architecture of this high-performance, low-footprint engine. For example, on Heroku's free tier with the free postgres addon, you can get query throughputs in excess of a 1000 reqs/sec at around ~50MB of RAM.
We will take you over how to set Hasura up with your existing Postgres applications, including authentication and authorization, so that you can start using GraphQL from your apps without writing backend code.
