Fighting legacy codebases with GraphQL and Rails

Time: 14:30 - 15:00      Duration: 00:30      Format: Standard

GraphQL is one of the hottest technologies of the past year or two. Still, very little is talked about GraphQL outside of the realm of front-end applications.

We used a different approach at IFTTT and applied GraphQL as an integration layer for different backends and client apps.

This talk goes beyond the basic configuration of a GraphQL endpoint with Rails. I’ll cover topics such ActiveRecord Query optimization, performance monitoring, batching and share some of the challenges we ran into while building a GraphQL API that serves over 10 thousand queries per minute.
