Talk for FOSSASIA 2016 (http://2016.fossasia.org)
This talk will give a brief and enlightening look into how GraphQL can help you address common weaknesses that you, as a web / mobile developer, would normally face with using / building typical REST API systems.
Let's stop fighting about whether we should implement the strictest interpretation of REST or how pragmatic REST-ful design is the only way to go, or debate about what REST is or what it should be.
A couple of demos (In Golang! Yay!) will be shown that are guaranteed to open up your eyes and see that the dawn of liberation for product developers is finally here.
Background: GraphQL is a data query language and runtime designed and used at Facebook to request and deliver data to mobile and web apps since 2012.
Hafiz Ismail (@sogko) is a contributor to Go / Golang implementation of GraphQL server library (https://github.com/graphql-go/graphql) and is looking to encourage fellow developers to join in the collaborative effort.
