We have tons of APIs integrated within great tools for building dynamic, full stack apps. If you are a developer, you probably are using technologies like schemaless data stores, serverless architectures, JSON APIs, and/or the GraphQL language.
If you're like me, when you start coding something new, you're probably finding yourself working with JSON. Maybe you're using Node.js or Python or any other dynamic language that uses JSON-like data natively or maybe you're working with data that you're pulling or serving from REST APIs.
Today, we're happy to introduce a new member of the Stargate API family; say hello 👋 to GraphQL. This new API extension makes it easy to add a GraphQL API layer to any new or existing Apache Cassandra® database.
We're excited to release the first preview of Stargate, an open source API framework for data. This project came about because we got tired of using different databases and different APIs depending on the work that we were trying to get done.
