Combining APIs using GraphQL schema stitching: Part 2

You can stitch APIs together thanks to GraphQL. It’s an incredibly useful approach that let’s you have unified, transparent access to multiple GraphQL APIs. This can make it easier to access data that is split across multiple APIs without understanding where exactly it’s located. In part one, we looked at the concept and purpose behind combining APIs. In this sequel, we will delve into a working example of GraphQL schema stitching to appreciate how it all works.

APIs and the services behind them have changed how we build software. I like to explain APIs as Lego blocks for developers. They're little building blocks that you can put together to build something bigger. You might have to glue to build a really big model but the individual pieces are necessary for the end-result.
