Getting started with GraphQL and Node.js

In this tutorial we look at how we can work with GraphQL. GraphQL is a query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. In the tutorial we setup a server using node.js we then run queries against it with express-graphql. We create a test database with test data so we could query our database with GraphQL.
