GraphQL APIs offer a number of advantages over REST APIs, such as solving the “N+1 requests” problem. And AppSync makes building scalable and performant GraphQL APIs much easier because it takes care of all the infrastructure concerns for you. In this talk, AWS Serverless Hero Yan Cui would discuss the power of GraphQL and AppSync and why AppSync + Lambda + DynamoDB should be your stack of choice. Some of the topics he will cover include: - GraphQL vs. REST - AppSync vs. API Gateway - AppSync vs. running GraphQL in Lambda - Monitoring and debugging AppSync
