Replacing Redux with GraphQL

Apollo GraphQL React

With the growing popularity of GraphQL and the latest features of powerful tools like the Apollo Client library, I explore its impact on how we might build apps, manage state, and the lessons learned along the way.

Last week I had the privilege of speaking at ReactTO’s July meetup. My talk starts with a look at Redux and the problems we solve with it before introducing GraphQL, the Apollo Client, and how these technologies can change the way we manage state in React applications.

I attempt to offer some insight as to why some consider apollo-link-state a replacement for Redux.
