REST is dead, long live GraphQL! Sat, 20 Oct 2018 2:00pm (45m) Saturday Speaker Talks, Stones River

GraphQL is a next generation query system for the internet. If you've ever been frustrated by a REST API because the data came back in an uncomfortable format, or you weren't able to ask for exactly what you need, then GraphQL is for you.

In this talk, I'll give an overview of how GraphQL APIs are built, how to use them as a client, and (since this is PhreakNIC) a brief breakdown of the security implications. The services demoed in the talk will be live and publicly accessible, so feel free to bring a laptop along to test out what you'll learn in real time.
