Data Retrieval via APIs – Showdown of ODATA vs GraphQL

Data Retrieval via APIs could be implemented in multiple methods. It could be ad-hoc HTTP GET calls with some limited set of querystring parameters; or could even be standardized via HTTP GET URLs using Open Data Framework (ODATA); or it could even be implemented in a more modern, non-RESTful yet powerful way by utilizing GraphQL. This talk focuses on comparing ODATA and GraphQL for trivial to complex data queries. This talk will include sample code and will discuss pros and cons of both approaches while designing enterprise grade standard APIs.
