GraphQL, Relay and Reindex


GraphQL is a new way of building APIs that is nice to product developers. With GraphQL they can build and iterate products faster, without spending that much time on constant changes to the backend. On top of GraphQL, there is new client ecosystem being born, with client-state libraries like Relay or Apollo Client redefining the field. Mikhail Novikov will tell you why GraphQL is the best thing that ever happened to APIs, why Relay matters and what Reindex is.

Mikhail is the CTO at Reindex, company working on GraphQL BaaS. Before Reindex he has been doing web development consulting, particularly in React, and before that worked in startups ZenRobotics and HDmessaging.
