Highly optimized APIs: Integrating GraphQL in serverless architecture

With three years on the market, GraphQL is a sophisticated and established alternative to REST. It should be taken into consideration when creating or further developing an API. Various applications such as Facebook, Instagram, and XING already successfully use this REST alternative. This is enough reason to give an insight into how GraphQL can be integrated into modern serverless architectures with little effort. In the interaction between GraphQL and AWS Lambda, a highly scalable implementation is presented that can be adapted to different architectures and frameworks.
