Talks on Wurreka:

Digital presence is of utmost importance in situations like COVID-19. Users access information or perform online transactions through different form factors ranging from desktop to hand-held devices. And Most of these communications happen via APIs behind the scenes. The API development is not new, and it has been around for many years now, and the technologies evolve so does the way to create APIs change too. We’ve Seen SOAP, and REST all these years. Now we have a cool new way of designing APIs called GraphQL - developed by Facebook. GraphQL solves some of the key problems that persist in REST APIs. Today, GraphQL powers a variety of companies such as Airbnb, Atlassian, Audi, CNBC, GitHub, Netflix, Shopify, The New York Times, Twitter, and Pinterest. GraphQL also powers hundreds of billions of API calls a day on Facebook social media platforms.

In this talk, we will learn the basics of GraphQL and some of the key differences between REST and GraphQL APIs. And of course testing GraphQL APIs too.
