GraphQL 💜 Haskell
GraphQL is the next big thing in web development, don’t you know that? In this talk you’ll learn what the fuss is about, and how to build a GraphQL server in Haskell using the Mu library.
GraphQL is a modern alternative to REST for web services. It supports more complex queries than simple GETs and POSTs, where you specify the data you really want. The downside is that writing a GraphQL server by hand is much harder than for REST.
Enter Mu, a library for developing microservices in Haskell. Recently, we have upgraded it to support GraphQL, in a simple yet type-safe way. This talk describes how to use Mu, and what is the bright future for GraphQL in Haskell.
Registration for Haskell Love is completely free.
