GraphQL is the successor of REST APIs and a declarative way to fetch and update data. This new paradigm is unlocking a completely new ecosystem turning frontend developers into superheroes.
After a quick introduction to GraphQL, you'll setup a fully-functional GraphQL backend using Graphcool. Afterwards, the goal for you is to build a simple messenger app with realtime functionality using GraphQL subscriptions.
Nikolas works as a developer at Graphcool. They strongly believe that GraphQL is the future of API design and have been using it intensely for over a year. Their goal is to share their learnings with the greater web community and make it as easy as possible for you to get started with GraphQL.
