GraphQL in the Python World. GraphQL is a new way of communicating with your data sources. It might replace RESTful APIs because it provides a better framework for dealing with your data. This webinar is about what GraphQL is and what problems it actually solves in comparison to RESTful APIs. Then, if you like it, how you can get started using the Python graphene library, and how to use it with different ORMs like Django and SQLAlchemy as well as Python web frameworks like Flask and Pyramid.
This webinar provides both a theoretical perspective as well as hands-on demos to showcase what GraphQL is, what it is capable of, and how it can benefit in your own jobs and side projects.
The video covers:
- An explanation of GraphQL
- Usage of the visual GraphiQL client against the GitHub GraphQL endpoints
- Writing a todo application in Flask which publishes GraphQL endpoints
- Inspecting those endpoints via a browser
