GraphQL is supplanting REST as the way browsers and mobile apps interface with servers.  GraphQL is a rich language for apps and services to agree on the structure of all their data, how it can be queried, and how it can be modified.  It has been around since 2012, and powers products like Facebook, Twitter, and Drupal.  AWS AppSync is a serverless, managed GraphQL platform that integrates with other resources in the AWS Cloud.  This talk starts with a fun quiz show game written with AppSync that everyone can play.  We break it down showing snippets of the web and mobile code, the GraphQL, and how AppSync ties it to the cloud database (Dynamo DB).
