Versioning an API in GraphQL vs. REST

GraphQL is a technology which is a modern and uniform alternative to the wealth of different RESTful interfaces. REST was introduced back in 2000 and is only an architectural style, not a specification. In REST any self-respecting developer is used to versioning, but in GraphQL there is no concept of versioning in the same sense.

What is TypeScript and why should I care?

TypeScript is a programming language that builds on top of JavaScript. It's not a complete language, but rather a layer that adds new features to JavaScript. The foremost of these is obviously strong typing, where the name is derived from.

Symfony and JWT (JSON Web Token)

JSON Web Tokens are a relatively new method for authentication. JWT for short is an open standard for passing claims between parties in web application environments. Instead of relying on a cookie, applications can rely on passing forward JSON Web Tokens.
