Introduction to GraphQL

Since GraphQL was announced by Facebook in 2015 it has started to gain quite a bit of traction with many companies such as Github looking to adopt it to either replace or complement their existing REST APIs. GraphQL provides a powerful way for the frontend to be able to query data sources and your business logic, giving and receiving only the data that they need, without having to always have custom designed endpoints for every use-case. As a consumer of third party APIs it probably won't be long before you're consuming a GraphQL API; and as a designer or creator of APIs, GraphQL can sometimes provide a better alternative than a REST API. Join me for a tour of what GraphQL looks like, what it works well for, how to consume a GraphQL API, and how to easily design and create one in PHP.

Great talk (as usually), good intro, loved your live demo (the error you got early on just made the talk even better).

Bravely used a live demo which worked well. Some simple examples that covered all the basics of GraphQL and leeft me wanting to use it more.

I had a lot of reservations about graph ql but after seeing this talk a lot of those have been placed to rest.

I really loved the sensible message of it not beening a golden bullet.

Great talk, with good delivery. Needs a little bit more implementation detail.

Good coverage of syntax and use cases etc. Demo was a little slow, but copy and paste from pre-written text would've helped. Couple of bits I was unclear on, that I mentioned to you already. Otherwise good talk!

I didn't know what GraphQL was before this talk now I know the types of situations that it would be applicable to to look up more in-depth when I need it. Didn't come out thinking I could use it without looking into it more but considering I didn't know what it was to begin with I wouldn't expect to.

Great combination of an interesting topic which left me thinking I want to know more and Michael's natural and enthusiastic delivery made this an excellent talk.
