125: GraphQL and Apollo with GDE Mike Nakhimovich (Part 1)

In this episode, we talk about GraphQL. Friend and GDE Mike Nakhimovich helped create the library Apollo for Android, which is the defacto official GraphQL client for Android.

In this first part of two, we take a step back and first try to understand what GraphQL is, why one would use it, how Mike set out to create and contribute Apollo for Android and his journey and satisfaction with open sourcing it when he worked at the New York Times.

If you've ever been interested in GraphQL, this is a good show to get you up to speed.
