GraphQL Will Do To REST What JSON Did To XML

Why GraphQL will become the new standard for sharing data between the backend and the frontend of your application. I will show how using GraphQL instead of REST services speeds up the development process and make it more declarative as GraphQL will take away the (imperative) hassle of tying data from multiple REST endpoints together. Getting started is easy and GraphQL can even be build on top of your existing REST, and I will show you how!
