Getting to know GraphQL


Basic Drupal 8 familiarity is expected.


Session details

REST provides greater flexibility and data is not tied to resources or methods. 

Things are working fine with REST until we decided to have nested content architecture and started referencing content from one another.

With the nested content, you might end up sending multiple REST calls to fetch data related to one content only. 

GraphQL helps us to overcome this limitation and allows us to “Ask for what we need and get exactly that in response” 

In this session, we’ll discuss:

  • What is GraphQL and basics about GraphQL

  • How we can use it in Drupal for decoupled projects.

  • How to get started with GraphQL

  • Demo with GraphQL + Gatsby js integration

Who should attend?

  • Developers

  • Site builders
