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 reproducable and usable in a real life coding scenarios; so come and learn the fundamentals of GraphQL in .Net.
