Discussion on: What are the cons of GraphQL?

Yes, where with REST you risk having small differences between different endpoints causing errors. We work api first with REST, but there are at least 3 ways of doing pagination, and that's with about 50 developers.

Absolutely true, although I would mention that if you are running a Federated schema for multiple services managed by multiple teams, you can do the same thing in GraphQL unless you enforce a strict pagination standard like Relay.

BTW, just wanted to say thanks for your great talk on using Kafka to back subscriptions at Summit. We've been looking into doing something similar to back our first subscription service so it was great to hear some of your insights :).
