These are my notes from Apollo Day: Opening Talk Matt. There are about 100 people at the conference. summit.graphql.com is coming November 6-8, 2018 in San Francisco. Proof of concept -> initial production use -> principle production use -> company-wide standardization. We no longer just have a single backend talking to a frontend. We have multiple services now. We're writing for a lot of platforms these days--not just web and mobile. How do we connect all the backend services to the different frontends? Instead of defining specific APIs for each backend, use GraphQL for the backend to describe the data it has and the frontend to describe what the frontend whats. Apollo is in the middle. It's the implementation. Apollo is the tooling that extends across the entire stack. Apollo is about tooling, workflow, and integration. Schema-centric development is the anchor between the frontend and the backend teams. GraphQL Playground is a UI to explore a GraphQL schema
