APIs on Steroids: Retrofitting GraphQL by Code, Cloud-native or Serverless
am 28.9. in München
With GraphQL a modern and flexible way of providing APIs for our data is emerging.
The clients specify which data they need, the provisioning of data becomes more flexible and dynamic. Over-fetching or under-fetching are history.
But does this mean we have to rewrite all our APIs? Can we retrofit a GraphQL API onto our existing API landscape?
We will explore three different approaches:
- The Developer Way: Writing a GraphQL API layer by hand
- The Cloud-native Way: Using lightweight API gateways
- The Serverless Way: Using Cloud Provider native services
We will look at all three approaches conceptually and try out the coding approach in a live demo.
