GraphQL as a Service with Scaphold.io
Software Engineering Daily,
Originally posted on Software Engineering Daily
GraphQL was open sourced out of Facebook, and gave developers a way to unify their different data sources into a single endpoint. 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 Scaphold, Vince Ning and Michael Paris. Scaphold.io lets developers configure their schema, and hosts their data. Vince and Michael explain the basics of GraphQL, and also discuss how they are building a GraphQL as a service platform.Sponsors
