Discussion on: Why GraphQL is the future of APIs

I'm curious about the level of scaling and abstraction available with graphql. Rest scales nicely due to load balancers easily parsing HTTP payloads, but if it's truly one endpoint, and the data you're requesting spans multiple datas sources, then your API endpoint becomes the load balancer. I'm very interested to see your next post on implementation details.
