Intro to GraphQL for REST developers

GraphQL is a data query language developed by Facebbok that provides a powerful alternative to traditional REST.

In this session I will provide a walkthrough of the GQL architecture and community, including:

– The differences and benefits of GraphQL vs REST
– Demonstrate GQL queries (your first 15 minutes with GQL)
– See how to query `through` your data
– Discuss schema design and architecture
– GQL client alternatives

This session will be technical in nature, but focused on fundamentals. I want you to leave the session with a
good understanding key concepts.
