    What is GraphQL?

    GraphQL is a data query language and runtime designed and used at Facebook to request and deliver data to mobile and web apps since 2012.

    What is MongoDB Stitch?

    MongoDB Stitch lets developers focus on building applications rather than on managing data manipulation code, service integration, or backend infrastructure. Stitch lets you focus on building the app users want, not on writing boilerplate backend logic.
