AWS re:Invent 2017: NEW LAUNCH! Data Driven Apps with GraphQL: AWS AppSync Deep Dive (MBL402)

Published on Dec 12, 2017

State and data management are the foundations of high quality web and mobile applications in use today. Unfortunately it’s often difficult to setup infrastructure for accessing data in a scalable, efficient and secure manner and easily integrate into your frontend or client framework of choice. In this session you’ll see how using GraphQL with AWS AppSync allows your clients to quickly and securely access data in the cloud using Amazon DynamoDB, AWS Lambda or Amazon ElasticSearch. You’ll see how flexible the system is to let web and mobile application developers define their data structures, mix and match the backing stores using GraphQL resolvers, and customize mapping templates as needed. We’ll take you through effective use of GraphQL queries, mutations, and subscriptions for batch and realtime needs. Finally you’ll see how easy it is for application developers to leverage the system using React Native, iOS and JavaScript web applications.
