Andrew Welch, Patrick Harrington
On this episode, Eve Porcello, Lead Instructor at Moon Highway, gives us a gentle introduction to GraphQL.
If you’re heard of GraphQL but aren’t quite sure what the benefits are over a RESTAPI, this is the episode for you!
We talk about when you’d use GraphQL, and what benefits it brings to the table over other ways of getting data from an endpoint.
We talk about practical use-cases for GraphQL, as well as whether you need to use a “client” library to access GraphQL at all. Tune in to find out!
