REST is the new SOAP
Pakal De Bonchamp

But wait! There’s also graphql roaring in to reintroduce type surety on the front end of our operations, async all the things and define those pesky rules and plug those leaky abstractions with gouts of rainbows and sunshine, ensuring you’ll never have breaking changes or need to version your public/inventory services.

Everything old is new again. Everything works until it doesn’t. Everything you build will eventually be ruined by conways law.

Or, in the words of Allan Sherman:

“‘Cause they promise me miracles, magic, and hope,
But, somehow, it always turns out to be SOAP”

*Graphql is admittedly pretty neat, but is definitely on the forefront of hipster 2.0 tech
