GraphQL for Absolute Beginners The Newbie Guide
Fetching data when coding is often a huge problem, especially when the load times slow down or crash your apps. This is exactly what happened at Facebook, when they tried to design their app and translate their code from their website to their app. Now, they needed a solution – a great one.
So, they designed GraphQL! GraphQL allows developers to fetch data from different sources using one common language so that it not only got the right data, but also reduced the app loading time. Since, then GraphQL API has become one of the most popular data fetching APIs for developers around the world.
GraphQL allows developers to get exactly what data they need and get multiple resources in the same request. Think of GraphQL as your own personal assistant that does the hard work of searching multiple resources for you, instead of you having to manually fetch data from different places.
