GraphQL is incorrectly considered by some to be a "replacement" to REST. GraphQL is a newer concept, being released by Facebook publicly in 2015, whereas REST was a dissertation published by Roy Fielding in 2000, popularized by companies like Twitter (quite inaccurately) in 2006.
This article aims to cover a few notable differences, and make the following points:
1. REST and GraphQL are totally different
2. GraphQL isn't a magic bullet, nor is it "better"
3. You can definitely use both at the same time
4. GraphQL is dope if used for the right thing
