GraphQL is an increasingly popular tool for JavaScript Developers and scaleup's in Amsterdam alike so we thought we give a little intro!  

What is GraphQL?

GraphQL is an open-source data query and manipulation language for APIs, and a runtime for fulfilling queries with existing data. GraphQL was developed internally by Facebook in 2012 before being publicly released in 2015.

What are the advantages?

  1. More Elegant Data Retrieval
  2. More Backend Scalability
  3. Better Query Efficiency
  4. GraphQL Improves understanding and organization
