GraphQL Hangout #51: Building GraphQL APIs the easy way with Apollo and Tyk

Duration 60min



The debates rage on about the pros and cons of building, securing and managing GraphQL APIs, but in order to truly understand how GraphQL works, you need to try it out for yourself.

Building production ready GraphQL APIs is more than just developing the API, you also need to consider security, management and publishing your APIs for consumption.

In this technical deep dive, join Budha, Product Evangelist at Tyk on Thursday, Feb 23 as we walk through the following together:

  • An overview of key GraphQL concepts, Apollo and Tyk
  • Setting up Apollo
  • Building your first GraphQL API
  • Writing your first resolver
  • Accessing your new GraphQL API
  • Setting up Tyk’s API gateway
  • Adding your GraphQL API to Tyk
  • Securing your GraphQL API
  • Adding Rate limiting, query depth limiting and field based permissions
  • Publishing your GraphQL API for consumption

If you are new to GraphQL, this will get you up and running quickly; if you are already using GraphQL APIs, then this workshop will show you how to secure and manage them using Tyk’s API management platform.

Our GraphQL Hangout series is a dedicated to our technical developer audience where we’ll deep dive into GraphQL use cases, products, topics and extended live demos.
