Behind every API there's code. REST and GraphQL are powerful interface abstractions but are not so great for writing code (we’re still looking for the programming language where every command is a GET, POST, PUT, or DELETE). When programmers work, they are usually making function calls, and an RPC framework like gRPC allows those functions to be written in a mixture of languages and distributed among many servers. This means that gRPC can be a great way to implement REST and GraphQL APIs at scale. We’ll share open source projects from Google that can be used to implement OpenAPI and GraphQL services with gRPC and give you hands-on experience with both.
