REST API modeling may be hard, using and supporting large collection of APIs is even harder. GraphQL is a answer for some of these problems. It’s a query language for APIs which provides complete description of your data and gives clients the power to ask for exactly what the need in a single request. In this talk you will learn about GraphQL concepts, differences between GraphQL and WSDL/SOAP/REST/etc and how to add it to your existing stack.

I'm a little disappointed by the little space given to the server-side of a technology with a such high potential

Concept was interesting, without any questions. Live demo of Graphqlhub interaction with conference Twitter feed was super. Nice slide design ;)

Inspiration mission completed, I'm just reading graphql.org :) Don't stress, it was good.

Nice talk but the POV from the beginning seemed to be like GraphQL is an alternative way to do the same thing of REST... which is true indeed but the key concepts about querying and other things were explained a bit “late” so I’ve lost a lot of attention because I was trying to figure out how those approaches could be “interchangeable”. After I got it, the talk was enlightening! I agree with other comments about little focus on backend

As most of GraphQL talks this one is also focused on the protocol it self and not showing real challenge of it's usage.

It started too slow and out of topic.

The live demonstration part helped a lot of the audience to understand the benefits of GraphQL. Some parts could be slightly optimized to arrive at the core topic a bit earlier but in general - good talk!

Thanks, I never thought about GraphQL as api gateway. Clear enought
