Thanks! I’ll definitely check those links/resources you provided. I have tried OData in the past for some simple applicatiosn(POC type of app), I haven’t really tried GraphQL, I noticed APIs written in it are becoming more and more prevalent. Interesting that you mentioned OData, so does it mean we can use OData with Rest we’ll get the benefits of GraphQL without using it? 😅

Definitely some of them, even more, if you don't like to write aggregations filtering or sorting because with OData you can do it in a query. But evaluate the decision, I don't know how is OData support for .net Core 3.0,3.1 at this point, a couple of months ago it wasn't, and in December it was in beta. Everything has pros and cons. Choose what can help you the most. Anyway, I like to use Both. Good luck.
