Increased efficiency usually equates to money saved, so there is a very real drive behind the constant need for condensing and code tweaking. Read more
We’ve previously discussed best practices when it comes to designing an API with quality developer experience. But what will the long term operational repercussions be for the design moves we make now?
For example, if URLs are designed without metadata to describe actions, later on, product owners will have a difficult time staring at unintelligible logs. Read more
In many ways, GraphQL is a futuristic approach to dealing with all the headaches surrounding high-data transfer, large-volume relational content.
