GraphQL has helped the industry realize the benefit of having typed APIs. But does that mean that if we switch over to a typed API like gRPC or OpenAPI then GraphQL is overkill? In this session, I want to discuss how GraphQL with Relay is critical to UI development and GraphQL without Relay leads us to reinventing the wheel on state management and API libraries again and again. And also as a corollary, how using GraphQL without Relay might not really be worth it!
