About this event

APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) are the gateways which allow the backends of many applications and services to communicate with one another. API Strategy depends on the ability to design an easy-to-use API that other developers can use in their application. For a few decades, REST or RESTful API (Representational State Transfer) was the de facto way to design APIs. GraphQL recently became a new alternative to REST. Is GraphQL better, or should you stick to REST? Let’s explore the key similarities and differences between the two.
