GraphQL in the Wild [I] - Steven Faulkner, Bustle

GraphQL is seeing rapid adoption in the JavaScript community. In part, thanks to an excellent reference implementation written in Node.js (graphql-js). Yet there are still many challenges to operating a GraphQL API in production and few real world examples of how to tackle them. Newcomers are often on their own for concerns such as:

- Authorization and authentication
- Extending built in types
- Sharing field definitions
- Deciding between Union and Interface types
- Custom default resolvers
- Project structure and organization

In this talk I'll discuss why Bustle rewrote our entire backend in GraphQL and how we solved these challenges along the way. I will also be open sourcing code extracted from our production GraphQL backend.
