GraphQL has undergone rapid adoption by multiple companies since its release but with thousands of pre-existing REST APIs out there, how does this seismic shift in APIs impact you as a consumer specifically when building user interfaces?

As a UI developer, I’m often faced with both types of APIs, this session focuses on the implications of interacting with GraphQL and REST APIs whilst comparing the two from a consumer perspective including live demonstrations showcasing in real time the differences between the two approaches.
