Over the past few years GraphQL has gained much traction, but what’s the state of GraphQL in Python. This talk describes what GraphQL is, why it has been created and the current state of GraphQL libraries in Python.

There will be a short history of GraphQL, some examples of what makes it shine and why it can be preferred to REST.

We will also analyse the current state of GraphQL in Python, having a brief overview of the current libraries and then having an in-depth look at Strawberry a new library based on dataclasses that makes it easy to create GraphQl APIs in Python.
