One of my favorite times of year at the office is when the interns join us for the summer. This summer was the biggest group of interns yet, with 6 interns working on open source and commercial products at MDG. ]
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.
Learn how to request GraphQL data in Next.js with Apollo Client. We'll walk through: Creating a new Next.js app; Installing Apollo Client and GraphQL; Using getStaticProps to fetch GraphQL data from the SpaceX API; Use launch data to create an app
Get the most value out of Apollo Client, Here is the guide for you, use it with one of its view layer GraphQL in Angular.
This is the third and final part of my series which explores implementing GraphQL using Apollo and NextJS.Part 1 dealt with the app setup, and Part 2 dealt with the Client-Side in depth. I would highly recommend reading them first before getting into this article, unless you are already comfortable with Client-Side GraphQL using Apollo.
