GraphQL is a replacement of traditional REST API’s because of a few important advantages. When you learn GraphQL, with a single request sent to the server, you can query multiple resources. In other words, if you have data stored in the MySQL database, and then additional data stored in text files, a GraphQL API can read and combine them into a single response for your pleasure! GraphQL’s efficiency also lies in the fact that it returns only the data that you request, so the loading time is reduced, and on top of that, user experience becomes a lot better! For example, if you want to create a database for a social networking page, and your user wants nothing more but the list of his friends, your GraphQL API will provide their names. With other techniques, it’s challenging to implement such an approach, and in GraphQL case, it’s built-in by default!
Here’s a quick overview of the lessons that will lead us to the mentioned result:
Also, please note that I’ll provide the source code and useful resources for you to download in this GraphQL tutorial.
GraphQL API will not only increase your work productivity and quality, but it will also give you a competitive advantage over the rest who are using old tools. Start learning today!
