Microservices are awesome! Serverless is the future!! Who doesn’t want to join the new revolution as we dissect, shard and split our evil monoliths into small, simple, stupid, smart, self-deployable units? Yet, after we finish tearing up our backend, we’ll need to face some new challenges such as joining our scattered data model, securing our different endpoints, and of course - creating a simple, robust API for our consumers.
For the last five years, we’ve been using microservices heavily at Soluto and we’ve encountered every one of these challenges. In this session, I’ll dig into GraphQL, microservices, serverless, gateways and describe in details and code how GraphQL can serve as a uniformed layer across different services/functions/apps and provide the glue we so desperately need.
