Introduction to GraphQL - Client Side

A hands-on introduction to GraphQL, the new(ish) query language from Facebook.  GraphQL is built around a simple premise: Ask for what you need, and get exactly that, in a predictable format.

The language allows us to define our requests in a strongly typed way, we can fetch data across multiple related databases or even APIs and know the shape of data that will be returned.  In this talk we will look at the problem that GraphQL attempts to solve, then fast-forward and see what a GraphQL solution could look like.

We’ll experiment with GraphQL and see how we can fetch data using the query language.  The talk will look at queries, mutations, variables, fragments, and filters. We will experiment with retrieving different types of data and discuss why we might choose this new standard over a traditional REST API.
