Main Topic: GraphQL for the Full-stack .NET Developer (William Wegerson)
GraphQL can be considered a next step `rest `-ful service in terms of the functionality of what it brings to a service API. In this discussion William Wegerson gives the history of GraphQL and demoes how one can build a useful hybrid rest and GraphQL.NET API against a SQL Server 2017/Azure database. William goes old school and shows how to pass on generated JSON data via stored procedures without Entity Framework for performance considerations all within a .NET Core 2.2 API using Visual Studio 2019. He also demonstrates a GraphQL testing playground based on the rest website to do basic queries against a fully stocked database. Every step is reproducible and usable in a real life coding scenarios; so come and learn the fundamentals of GraphQL in .NET.
