A presentation about trade-offs in Web APIs
GraphQL is a great tool for front-end developers who now can retrieve any kind of data in their application in the format they want. However, REST always promised us a better user-perceived performance, better interoperability, better scalability of the entire architecture, and so forth. Can GraphQL be designed in such a way that it follows the REST constraints?
