GraphQL is not the new kid on the block anymore but many developers haven't tried it yet – including yours truly, half a year ago. Now I use it daily, and I never want to go back. Let me explain to you what GraphQL is and why you too should care if you work with APIs. In this two-part presentation we'll first dive into the basics, so you get a bit of a foundation. In the second part, I'll do some live coding to demonstrate how easy it is to get started with a GraphQL backend based on Prisma.io.
