Last year, GitHub embarked on a big change: they built a new API using GraphQL for both internal engineers and external integrators to use. In this talk, Kyle will share how GitHub chose GraphQL, how GraphQL differs from REST and other tech, how GitHub went about implementing it, and how they're using it production less than a year later. You'll leave with a working knowledge of GraphQL and the pros and cons of using it within your organization.
