GraphQL has been a term in the industry for a little while, and it got a lot closer to home when Magento announced they would be building a GraphQL API for Magento 2.

…Great(!) But what is GraphQL? Is it like SQL? Is it like REST? How is this different? How is it better?

GraphQL is a new interaction layer for APIs, in the same class as REST, or SOAP. But its paradigm is a radical shift that makes it very pleasant to consume, enabling simpler and more performant highly customise front ends, including the upcoming Magento PWA Studio.

Over an hour or so, Max will walk through what GraphQL is, why Magento is including it in their platform, along with worked examples using the pre-release 2.3 version of Magento Open Source, so that when it lands, you’ll be ready to take advantage on day one.
