What a whirlwind of a trip to Paris. The badgers are back in London after three days of meeting ReactJS developers, hastily starring cool GitHub repos, and having a few too many at the Frog. As a relative newcomer to React it was fascinating to hear about how much the ecosystem and community have grown in just a year.
With pizza eaten and beers in hand the Facebook auditorium was once again rammed for this months React.js meetup. We were incredibly excited and honoured to welcome Nick Schrock, Facebook Engineer & GraphQL co-creator, to give an extended talk on his creation – GraphQL.
I recently returned from React Europe 2015 where Facebook released GraphQL, it's been in production use at Facebook for several years. In a nutshell, a GraphQL API opposes REST and add-hoc endpoints, it allows a client to efficiently get all the data it needs in one network request, and it allows a developer to concisely and declaratively express their apps data requirements.
Recently myself plus a few of the Red Badger team packed our hair curlers and rolled out to Paris on the EuroStar for the React Europe conference hosted in Paris.
