Getting Started with Apollo Federation


Apollo Federation allows you to orchestrate different GraphQL services into a single GraphQL gateway. In this playlist, we'll introduce you to the core concepts of Apollo Federation to get you started by improving an example app for Snowtooth Mountain.

The lift ops team has created a Lift service that provides lift status reporting for skiers and the ability to change the lift status for ski patrollers. The mountain ops team has created their own service to report on Trail status. These are completely separate GraphQL APIs, and we'll turn them into federated APIs that work under one gateway.
