A few myths about GraphQL

GraphQL is still a relatively new technology. Its adoption is growing, but in the Python world there seems to still be some pushback. This might be because there are some myths about GraphQL that lead to it being discarded for other options.

In this talk, I’ll talk through some of them, and I will bring clarity to what GraphQL actually is and when you should use it. We’re also going to see some examples of how to use GraphQL with Python using Strawberry GraphQL.

Some myths we’ll be talking about are:

  • GraphQL isn’t secure
  • GraphQL can’t be cached
  • GraphQL doesn’t scale and more :)
