Although the promise of GraphQL is appealing, the process of setting up a GraphQL server that can communicate with each disparate data source can prove to be complex. Scaphold.io provides GraphQL as a service, and today’s guests are the creators of
Facebook’s developer platform questions the dogmas of application development. React, Relay, Flux, GraphQL, and React Native are ruthlessly pragmatic developer tools. Fundamental questions begin each week on Software Engineering Daily. Fundamental answers conclude each week with a coherence of lessons from the podcast interviews.
GraphQL is a query language for managing client-server interactions. Relay is a new way of structuring client applications that co-locates data fetching with view logic. These technologies complement the paradigm shift of React and other Facebook technologies.
Nick Schrock is the co-creator of GraphQL and an engineer on product infrastructure at Facebook.
React is the product of Facebook and a large open-source community. Facebook engineering has recently produced a powerful suite of loosely coupled tools for development: React, GraphQL, Relay, React Native, and Flux Architecture.
