Implementing GraphQL without a backend

Vladimir Guguiev




GraphQL is getting more and more popular for developing web services. The traditional approach is to upgrade your backend service and then connect your frontend to it. We did it the other way around, starting with frontend and adding the backend later. This talk is about why and how we did it, so you can do it too.
