Mihaela-Roxana Ghidersa

Software developer and technology passionate- I enjoy building and delivering quality, all the while trying to have fun as much as possible. I am a perceptive and innovative individual that's not afraid to exploit its best version and go the extra mile outside the comfort zone of conventional. This exact desire, of getting out of the comfort zone, led me in the last years to changing the context from full-stack, frontend, API design to technical leadership and architecture.

From REST to GraphQL

Sometimes RESTful APIs keep us bound to the HTTP protocol when it comes to shaping data. Although it is a very valid choice when it comes to transporting data, details like versioning public APIs, managing multiple endpoints, overfilling/ underfilling data or having to perform multiple calls, to fully populate an application, make us waste a lot of time and ignore some very important metrics.
