Rest APIs are REST-in-Peace APIs. Long Live GraphQL.” is yet another look at REST vs. GraphQL for the API implementation.

I’m involved with developing quite a bit of REST APIs at work, but for now we are just trying to buy us some time.  I want to take a really long and good look at GraphQL, but I don’t think this will happen this year.  In the meantime, if you have any good GraphQL resources, please do send them my way.
