The Northeast PHP Conference is a community conference intended for networking and collaboration in the developer community. While grounded in PHP, the conference is not just about PHP. Talks on web technology, user experience, and IT management help PHP developers broaden their skill sets. We are entirely non-profit. Our organizers and and speakers volunteer their time to create a community event experience on par with the big technology conferences. We value the participation of each member of the PHP community, so follow @NEPHP on Twitter for updates and don’t miss out!

Feedback form is now closed.
GraphQL is incorrectly considered by some to be a "replacement" to REST. GraphQL is a newer concept, being released by Facebook publicly in 2015, whereas REST was a dissertation published by Roy Fielding in 2000, popularized by companies like Twitter (quite inaccurately) in 2006.
This article aims to cover a few notable differences, and make the following points:

1. REST and GraphQL are totally different
2. GraphQL isn't a magic bullet, nor is it "better"
3. You can definitely use both at the same time
4. GraphQL is dope if used for the right thing
