REST in Peace – Modern API Design with GraphQL

GraphQL is a new and open-source technology that provides a more efficient and flexible alternative to RESTful APIs. It was developed and open-sourced by Facebook and is now maintained by a large community of individuals and organisations from all over the world. In this talk, Nikolas Burk will give an introduction to GraphQL and explain how it compares to REST. Furthermore, he’ll provide context on some architectural use cases for GraphQL and highlight major concepts that you should be aware of. He will also demonstrate how to get started quickly with your own GraphQL server using Graphcool.

We will also do an introduction to graphql-dotnet.
