In this talk, we will be diving into what really is GRAPHQL, how it's different from REST, and then cover concepts such as schema, queries, resolvers, etc. Furthermore, we will proceed to use GitHub public graphql API to explore how we can retrieve information such as (name, email, avatar, repositories, starred repositories, followers count, and a lot more). We'll be using Postman to explore this and also for folks who aren't vast with the tool it will be a privilege to walk them through. To wrap things up we'll then proceed to publish the collection we will be building courtesy postman which will be used for future learnings
