GraphQL

"Thanks for an interesting morning, glad to have been in the first GraphQL training in Finland. It was extremely interesting and we even got to try things out. Can’t wait to try it out on a project."

GraphQL is a data query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. Developed by Facebook, open sourced and now used by hundreds of companies ranging from GitHub to Intuit, it gives clients the power to ask for exactly what they need and nothing more, making it easier to evolve interfaces over time. As such, it is ideally suited for mobile applications and is the next big thing in APIs, most likely to replace REST architectures in the future. Exactly how does GraphQL work though and what changes are needed on the server and client to support it?

We cover these topics in our GraphQL workshop run together with Skydom, a San Francisco based consultancy that builds reliable and scalable APIs. Using our tried and tested format combining theory sessions with hands-on exercises, we make sure that you walk away with a good overview of the benefits of GraphQL and the tools in its ecosystem. The workshop is aimed at lead developers and startup CTOs who have already heard of GraphQL and want to get a better understanding of its benefits.
