Introspection is the ability to query information about a GraphQL API’s schema. In this lesson, we will write queries that will return information about the pet library schema.

To follow along with these queries, go to the Pet Library GraphQL Playground.

Very good set of lectures. Well done. Is it possible to do a course that compares a REST to GraphQL full stack? Coming from many years of RESTful apps it would be nice to see a comparison along the lines of: "This is how you did it with REST and that same thing done with GraphQL looks like this..."
