I'm a software developer focusing mostly on cloud computing and web technologies. I'm especially interested in how to handle edge cases to end up with dependable software.

When I started working with GraphQL I needed to do a lot of research until I felt I have a chance to start building a reliable and robust solution. This book aims to be the guide that covers everything you'll need to get you from working with REST-like APIs to AppSync.
