If you are like most developers, you are embracing applications built using microservices and a NoSQL database. Creating applications is hard because microservices are often written in different languages, database drivers have a maintenance burden, or familiar HTTP APIs lack the performance needed. Data APIs can simplify application development, but which one is best for your use case? In this session you will learn about industry standard APIs (REST, schemaless JSON, GraphQL, and gRPC) that can be used to interact with a database. Identify what the benefits of these APIs and why gRPC has become the API of choice for connecting microservices.
