Putting Rest to rest: Let’s chat about GraphQL
by Marcos Damasceno
Shopify has adopted GraphQL for almost all services in the company. With GraphQL, clients craft queries and get back only what they requested, everything is typed and everything you want to expose is part of a schema. The days of not knowing what fields are accepted by what endpoint are over. In this talk, we will go through the basics of GraphQL and we will also take a look at Apollo for Android.
