Why should I learn GraphQL?
Obviously, you should use the right tool for the job, right? … but often, what was the “right” tool, becomes the inferior tool, and frequently you don’t even notice…
The most popular way of talking to servers today, is using REST. REST offers a nice, easy to understand way of interacting with other servers, but think about this: Rest was introduced about 2 decades ago& That’s a long time in our world!
Let me ask you a question: how much has software development changed in 2 decades? Heck, how much has software development changed in 2 years? A LOT!
So, I think it’s fair to ask the question:
Do REST api’s still make sense, considering how we write software today?
To answer this question, let’s look at some of the problems with REST API’s:
Problem –> Many Concurrent Requests
Most non–trivial applications, make many concurrent REST api calls, before the app can even render a view& Why is this a problem? It might not be a problem, if the app has an excellent network connection (like our dev machines do), but it can be a horrible problem, on mobile devices with weak connections.
When mobile devices make many concurrent network requests, the response is often very slow, and the app might seem unresponsive… and it may not work at all. This can result in a dismal user experience.

One of the best instructors/courses I followed on Udemy. Go and buy! The content is clear, useful, applicable and the instructor transfers knowledge rather just presenting it. I just reached 20% and watched several things twice, not because it’s hard to understand or I wasn’t listening, but by following you understand this guy really condensed this whole course to the important topics and context we should know. Its a shame this course isn’t maintained nor the instructor is really active. I d buy more knowledge from him and in this case, wouldn’t even mind paying the full price. In case you wonder why I provide 5 stars for an unmaintained course: I believe this was crafted with a lot thoughts upfront going in and would bet if you listen and UNDERSTAND you will have no issue applying most knowledge to the updated versions consider it as a little challenge. AWESOME VALUE FOR THE MONEY!

So far, this is mostly review for me. I’m really looking forward to the sections on the more in depth features of GraphQL, like Aliases, Fragments, and such. Now that we’re getting into the meat of GraphQL, this appears to be a really thorough treatment of the subject matter. Definitely worth the time for me.

The course is well paced and gives plenty of opportunities to try things out for myself to reinforce my learning.
