The GraphQL 101 series is finished. We've examined the parts of the GraphQL specification and learned what they do. To recap: What is GraphQL? GraphQL is a query language and a server-side runtime for APIs that prioritizes giving clients precisely the data they request, no more and no less. What
So far we've covered an overview of GraphQL, the Query Language, and the Type System. Now, let's take a look at how we validate queries and how queries are executed. The schema covered in the Type System post is used by a GraphQL server to validate queries from clients or
A schema defines a GraphQL API's type system. It describes the complete set of possible data (objects, fields, relationships, everything) that a client can access.

A quick recap of GraphQL 101: Query Language Part 1: the parts of the query language were presented and we looked at what those parts do along with examples of queries and mutations. In this post, we'll finish covering operations topics with fragments, directives, and Subscriptions. More examples will be
In Intro to GraphQL [https://www.docdocgo.dev/graphql-101/], we learned that GraphQL consists of a query language and a server runtime. Queries, mutations, and subscriptions are defined within the query language which contains the following parts. * Operations - the document which contains the types of operations: query, mutation, and
GraphQL is a query language and a server-side runtime for APIs that prioritizes giving clients exactly the data they request. Why Does It Matter? According to Gartner, 83% of all Internet traffic comes from APIs. And while it is not disputed that REST APIs still dominate API implementations. GraphQL is
