Title: Going Full-Stack with GraphQL
REST is a great convention on paper, but is it actually good enough for today's variety of clients like web, mobile, IoT etc? Is there a better alternative? GraphQL's query language can drastically change the way you think about data models and state-management. Besides solving REST's over-fetching and need for many HTTP calls, GraphQL can power your complete client/backend stack by introducing a single source of truth data model. This allows GraphQL based tooling like Apollo to take over your client's state-management and allows you to focus on what actually matters: building a great user experience. In this talk we'll learn how to put GraphQL (Java) in front of an existing Java REST backend and how to power a brand new microservice architecture with GraphQL (Node) + Apollo Federation. Both cases will be connected to clients built in React that rely fully on Apollo's magical GraphQL based state-management.
Software Engineer at OpenValue who loves to learn and share new things. Has a weak spot for Full Stack development. Currently works with Apollo and GraphQL in a microservice architecture.
