Great Post! but I think everyone should know that it's quite hard for handling entity population and N+1 problem in graphql :(

Thank you Calvin. Absolutely, one of the hardest things to archive in GraphQL. But there are libraries that can help on that, like dataloader and if you can use prisma or hasura you don't need to worry about it.

But the N+1 issue in GraphQL without a doubt could be the trickiest and hardest thing to handle.

I'll try and make a post explaining the N+1 issue :)
