Dgraph: Native GraphQL Database with Manish Jain


GraphQL has changed the common design patterns for the interface between backend and frontend. This is usually achieved by the presence of a GraphQL server, which interprets and federates a query from the frontend to the backend server infrastructure. Dgraph is a distributed graph database with native GraphQL support. Manish Jain is a founder of Dgraph, and joins the show to talk about its purpose and his vision for the future of the technology.
