Web giants like Facebook and Google are setting a torrid pace to make life better for front-end developers. By creating new technologies like React, supported by frameworks like Vercel’s Next.js and Netlify, these companies free developers to focus on the logic of their new applications and services while abstracting away the back-end issues that have historically slowed developers.
Facebook rightly gets credit for its front-end work with open source React, but arguably it may deserve even more credit for open sourcing an emerging query language called GraphQL. In a new cloud native world of microservices, the number of endpoint APIs increases exponentially, which is proving a huge challenge for traditional SQL technologies.
