PRO TALK (API): GraphQL with Postman

Olanrewaju Sule-balogun
SeamlessHR, Backend Engineer

With publications around Web and Cloud development on platforms such as Freecodecamp, Medium, and iC0dE Magazine that get thousands of weekly readers on average, enough emphases can't be made on how much I enjoy sharing my knowledge and helping other Developers around the globe learn about trends and best practices around the tech space.

With a bachelor's, Master's degree in computer science, I'm very passionate about science and most importantly, how it helps reshape our world.

I currently work at SeamlessHR as a backend engineer and also with Postman as a supernova where my role actively involves educating the tech ecosystem through talks in-person or virtual

In this talk, we will be diving into what really is GRAPHQL, how it's different from REST, and then cover concepts such as schema, queries, resolvers, etc. Furthermore, we will proceed to use GitHub public graphql API to explore how we can retrieve information such as (name, email, avatar, repositories, starred repositories, followers count, and a lot more). We'll be using Postman to explore this and also for folks who aren't vast with the tool it will be a privilege to walk them through. To wrap things up we'll then proceed to publish the collection we will be building courtesy postman which will be used for future learnings
