Fullstack GraphQL is the complete guide to building servers and clients with GraphQL.

Build Robust, Safe, and Flexible APIs with GraphQL
GraphQL changed the way data is transferred between applications.
As you will work through this book, we hope you won't just add GraphQL to your toolbox, but also develop a new way of thinking about data models, APIs, and full-stack development.
GraphQL - and it's huge ecosystem - give you tools to create and consume flexible, easy-to-use, type-safe APIs.
Usage Driven: It encourages users to define queries that specify what data to fetch in a granular way.
Intuitive: GraphQL delivers you only the data that you request, in the exact format that you requested
: GraphQL schemas are strongly typed and define a strict contract between a query and its response.
GraphQL embodies many lessons learned from API design that enforces several best practices into one solution, and in Fullstack GraphQL we show you how to use these tools with practical code-driven examples.
