In this workshop, we'll build on the basics of GraphQL by learning how to design and implement a federated architecture. We'll start by reviewing the core concepts of building GraphQL microservices, and then we'll get hands-on experience creating our own gateway. Finally, we'll manage and orchestrate these endpoints with Apollo Studio.
