60: Nitty-gritty details, slow starts, fast profiling

Friday, 12 January 2018


Welcome back to the first issue of The REPL in 2018. If you took time off, I hope you had a great break away.

I’ve got a favour to ask this week. At Day8 we’re evaluating different backend technologies and are taking a hard look at GraphQL. We’re coming from a CQRS mindset, and GraphQL looks like it might be a good fit. I’d be really interested to hear about your experience if you’ve used it. There’s lots of information about what’s good about it, but less so about the problems people have with it. If you used it, what issues did you run into? If you looked at it, but decided not to use it, why?
