REST APIs have been helping us to define the way we deliver the data. Although, times are changing, and new challenges come with it.
What if you could request just the fields that you need? Or even add new ones on top of the ones that you current API is delivering?
And what if this magic comes directly to the FrontEnd store, and all of your database entities reflects transparent in your cache, available to use it and to avoid requesting the same data over and over?
This magic is real. And it is called GraphQL, one of the most impressive technologies of the moment.
I learned about parts of user experience journey that I didn’t understand before, so now I really know what mistakes I can avoid and what steps I shouldn’t miss.
It was a fun environment and it seemed like we were just learning about UX design and hanging out with friends.
