I’m finally starting to branch out onto my own projects and I’m discovering really cool tools that I’d like to use, but I’m unsure if I should. My last to fCC projects were made using GraphQL which I’ve come to really enjoy and would like to implement more of and get better at.
While planning my latest project I’ve come across Graphcool, which seems absolutely brilliant. Question is, does using Graphcool weaken me as a (learning) developer?
Graphcool’s marketing material indicate that using their service allow devs to code and not manage a database. Does this remove the “backendness” of my project? I want to work full stack, and don’t want to use this tool as a crutch. Are tools like these made for front end devs (and thus I should avoid it)?
