Writing GraphQL queries in native Ruby = Love ❤️

GraphQL has made waves with front end developers, but if you’re a backend developer, chances are it hasn’t infiltrated your world –– you might not even know what it is. And it’s not your fault. There has been a limited amount of blog posts, talks and information around using GraphQL APIs on languages that don’t have an official Apollo client.

How to automatically watermark Contentful assets using a serverless function

We made it friends! We finally reached the point where developers can deploy HTTP endpoints without worrying about infrastructure. You might have guessed it, and you’re right – I’m talking about the serverless buzzword! The big infrastructure players; AWS, Microsoft, IBM, and others all provide functions as a service these days. Serverless functions make it possible for you to write 100 lines of code, test it and ship it – 100% scalable and doesn’t cost you a single dollar whenever the deployed code is not running.
