GraphQL-Ruby under the hood and how to write more elegant APIs

At RubyRussia, in Moscow, Russia


Share on

Figuring out how a complex open source project works is a challenging task: a huge codebase and lots of not obvious solutions can raise the bar. This talk is about graphql-ruby and its internals—the author explains how schema definition and query execution are implemented and then uses this knowledge to write plugins extending library API.

This talk is for people who:

  • use graphql-ruby and want to know how it works;
  • want to learn how GraphQL execution engines are implemented;
  • plan to contribute to open source libraries and want to understand how complex things work.
