React, Relay and GraphQL – Robert Hostlowsky (codecentric)

Facebook uses GraphQL to power their apps and web sites. It is open source. So what is it in detail? How does it work? How could it solve typical problems we have with REST.

One of the goals was to improve maintainability, provide higher flexibility for e.g. supporting many different client-versions, and provide rich developer support. At Facebook it is used heavily, and there are quite interesting features on there road-map…

Should I already use GraphQL now? How can I integrate or migrate to this technology? Writing our own GraphQL based Server.

Robert Hostlowsky In the last 17 years Robert collected experiences and insights in different roles into software development. Currently he is working at codecentric AG as a developer and technical coach for agile development practices targeting high quality and efficiency.
