GraphQL vs. REST + ORM

Prisma: GraphQL Infrastructure with Soren Bramer Schmidt - Software Engineering Daily

"GraphQL allows developers to communicate with all of their different data backends through a consistent query interface. A GraphQL query can be translated into queries to MySQL, MongoDB, ElasticSearch, or whatever kind of API or backend is needed to fulfill the GraphQL query.
Prisma is a tool for automatically generating a GraphQL API and serving GraphQL queries. The developer defines a data model and deploys with Prisma. Prisma generates the necessary GraphQL infrastructure to serve queries from the developer’s database. "
