GraphQL has five built-in scalar types that can be returned from a field: Int, Float, Boolean, String, and ID. It is also possible to create and validate your own custom scalar if you want to return a single value or leaf instead of an object from a field. In this lesson, we’ll build a custom scalar type to handle parsing and serializing dates.
