OpenAPI and GraphQL: Bridging the Gap

This video originally recorded for the ASC 2021 API Specifications Conference.

OpenAPI specs are fantastic complete descriptions of REST endpoints. However, how REST APIs are specified and how they get exposed as GraphQL is different. There are many reasons for this gap--performance, lack of consistent specs, non standard way of filtering, type inconsistencies etc. This talk highlights some of these issues and practical ways of briding the gap. Successfully doing so enables the investment in REST to be carried over to the GraphQL world.
