Remember RESTful APIs? Remember how you had to create an API endpoint for every little thing and as your business grew, so did the data payloads of your API endpoints? Remember how tiring it is to consume data from large APIs via a frontend like Angular or React?
Take GraphQL, a new concept that allows you to query your APIs rather than just consume data from them. Using GraphQL, you can query for data from your frontend using a single endpoint and no specific amount of data complexity.
In this session, learn how to create an API powered by GraphQL using the Go programming language and a NoSQL database.
