GraphQL is a strongly-typed, self-documented query language, hierarchical in nature and driven by your product needs. It is a tool that changes the way APIs are designed, empowering front-end engineers and making the requirements of the views they are building the main driver of the API design. It also allows back-end engineers to build the language and runtime that would fulfill those requirements.

In this talk, Luis will share the good, the bad and the ugly of his experience with GraphQL, and you will learn how to create your own GraphQL driven services using Sangria, Finch, Circe and Cats.

The Call for Papers is now open for Scala eXchange 2017! Submit your talk for the chance to join a stellar line-up of experts on stage. Find out more.
