Angular 2 love at first sight with GraphQL

By Gerard Sans

Angular 2 love at first sight with GraphQL

GraphQL was developed internally at Facebook in 2012. Its main goal was to allow Native Mobile teams to quickly build new products and collaborate within the large Facebook ecosystem without disrupting existing Data Services. In this talk we are going to introduce GraphQL and how we can use it together with the Apollo Client in Angular 2.
