Intro to GraphQL plus Gatsby Schema Stitching

webinar: Amazee Labs webinar, Zürich, online

A Short History of Web APIs

Since 2000, websites have been getting data from other websites by using REST APIs. But now we have a new method of building and consuming web APIs, GraphQL. GraphQL is more than a "better REST"; for developers, it provides a unified graph of data that includes multiple sources in easy to use system.

In this session, we’ll:

  • Discuss the benefits of a universal GraphQL graph over traditional web services like REST and JSON:API
  • Demonstrate how to query data using GraphqQL
  • Discuss how an GraphQL endpoint provides data
  • Discuss how GraphQL can "stitch" multiple sources of data into one graph using schema stitching
  • Demonstrate simple schema stitching using Gatsby’s gatsby-source-graphql plugin
