Schema Metadata: A Growing Need


This week, Benjie gave a virtual talk at GraphQL Conf - the first official GraphQL Conference hosted by the GraphQL Foundation.

Benjie was one of eight GraphQL experts giving a talk on the cutting edge of GraphQL advancements; his talk focused on the need for a defined approach to GraphQL schema metadata. From complex challenges such as federating schemas to simply indicating pagination limits, the needs for this metadata are growing. This talk surfaced some of the use cases for schema metadata, looked over some of the workarounds that are in use, and briefly explored some proposed solutions.
