Kafka and GraphQL: Misconceptions and Connections

ยซ Kafka Summit APAC 2021

GraphQL is a powerful way to bridge the gap between frontend and backend. Providing a typed API with introspection. This can be used for code generation or code completion.

Because of some misconceptions it can be hard to combine GraphQL with Kafka, but it doesnโ€™t need to be hard.

After handling misconceptions like 'Kafka is just a message bus' and 'GraphQL is only for Graph databases' I will have a few demo's how both can be combined. It can be a clear way to make your event sourcing backend available to the frontend. GraphQL can be used to quickly setup a typed API, if you already use ksqlDB.
