Eve Porcello and Alex Banks, authors of the O'Reilly "Learning GraphQL" book which is coming out soon, recently announced they're going on a GraphQL Workshop tour. These two-day workshops will teach you everything you need to know about building GraphQL servers and interacting with their APIs from the frontend.
GraphQL can be difficult to grasp at first - but as soon as it clicks, people get excited about the various possibilities. Erin Fox from Major League Soccer recently had that experience and immediately shared her knowledge via a blog post! Definitely give this article a read if you're still in the camp of not quite understanding the value GraphQL provides.
Tools & Open Source
The open-source content management framework strapi just announced that it will now also be possible to query their generated APIs via a dedicated GraphQL layer. The corresponding GraphQL API provides everything you need: CRUD operations, filters, permissions and the possibility to customize the generated GraphQL schema. This is a game-changer for many content creators.
