"GraphQL is not cacheable", "GraphQL breaks caching". These are things we hear a lot as soon as using GraphQL as your next API is mentioned. Is this the truth? These statements usually lack a lot of nuance that is required to understand the subject in more depth. In this talk, we'll cover everything required to understand the issues with caching and GraphQL, which tradeoffs we are making when picking GraphQL as an API paradigm and how to make sure we are doing it right. Existing solutions will be explored, as well as ideas for the future to improve the landscape.
