What we're about

Welcome to our community. We love GraphQL. Join us!

GraphQL was developed internally at Facebook in 2012. Its main goal was to allow Native Mobile teams to quickly build new products and collaborate within the large Facebook ecosystem without disrupting existing Data Services. In July 2015, Facebook decided to open source it. They published an specification (https://facebook.github.io/graphql/), and provided a reference implementation, using JavaScript (graphql-js (https://github.com/graphql/graphql-js)), to get feedback from the community and allow other implementations to emerge.

GraphQL can be used either to refer to the GraphQL Specification (https://facebook.github.io/graphql/), an implementation of a GraphQL Server or the Data Query Language.

Today there are many GraphQL Server implementations using: Python (graphene (https://github.com/graphql-python/graphene)), Scala (sangria (https://github.com/sangria-graphql/sangria)), Go (https://github.com/graphql-go/graphql), PHP (https://github.com/webonyx/graphql-php), Java (https://github.com/graphql-java/graphql-java) and more (https://github.com/chentsulin/awesome-graphql)!

=== Talk
Handling GraphQL Errors in depth (by Gerard Sans)

Gerard is a Developer Evangelist for Web and Cloud. He is interested in technologies such as GraphQL, Web3 and AI.

In this talk, Gerard will explore all the different strategies to effectively handle various types of GraphQL errors that can occur when building a GraphQL client using Apollo Client. Most code samples online focus on the happy path. We will look at what happens when you encounter more unexplored areas of GraphQL and how to overcome these challenges! Join us to learn more about error handling using Apollo Client
