Learn how Netlify grew to a core strategy for Apollo GraphQL. An experimental project can become a core part of your business. All it takes is a window of opportunity to see what might happen if you pursue that idea that tends to get filed away to the next development sprint.
Apollo GraphQL started with a single project, moving their marketing page over to Netlify. They could have stopped there and called it a day after a successful migration. But, Apollo’s Developer Experience team remained on the lookout for ways to build the ideal experience for the developers they serve.
By revamping Apollo’s internal site architecture, the Developer Experience team unlocked powerful new ways to iterate and improve the way they serve developers, while making their own team more efficient and impactful.
Slowly, and then all at once, Netlify grew from an experiment to a core strategy for Apollo. Instead of wrestling with different REST APIs and writing code to grab data from those APIs, developers can simply ask Apollo to fetch the data they need without the heavy lift other services require.

GraphQL is a query language and a server-side runtime that is used to request data from the server. The first thing that comes to mind when hearing the term “query language” is SQL. Just as SQL is used for querying databases, GraphQL is a bit like SQL but for querying web APIs as it eliminates the need to repeatedly develop or change existing end-points. GraphQL also enables the client/front-end to retrieve exactly the data they have requested and no more. This means that, within a single request of GraphQL, you can traverse from the entry point to the related data (whereas in RESTful API you have to call multiple endpoints to fetch similar results).

Queries are the one of the first things we learn about in GraphQL. In this post, we’ll cover what GraphQL queries are and how they work. We’ll also learn how to write and execute GraphQL queries using Apollo Explorer: a powerful GraphQL IDE.
