Rescuing legacy codebases with GraphQL

Rescuing legacy codebases with GraphQL

GraphQL is one of the hottest technologies of the past year or two. Still, very little is talked about GraphQL outside of the realm of front-end applications.

We used a different approach at IFTTT and applied GraphQL as an integration layer for different backends and client apps.

This talk goes beyond the basic configuration of a GraphQL endpoint with Rails. I’ll cover topics such ActiveRecord Query optimization, performance monitoring, batching and share some of the challenges we ran into while building a GraphQL API that serves over 10 thousand queries per minute.
