JSFoo Pune 2019

JSFoo is a JavaScript conference hosted by HasGeek.


Why we chose Apollo GraphQl over Redux and Mobx??

Submitted by Paridhi Sharma (@paridhisharma) on Saturday, 30 June 2018

Technical level: Intermediate


We migrated Microsoft Teams App from Angular to React recently. The challenge was to choose the state management technique for the new react App. While the community seems fairly divided between Mobx and Redux, we @ Microsoft chose to stick with Apollo.

This talk is for all those people who want to know the performance difference between different state management libraries.


This talk will involve:
1. The basic architecture of Redux, MobX and Apollo GraphQl.
2. Why we chose Apollo over the other two. I will also touch upon the performance issues we faced.
3. Apollo features- Apollo Client, Caching


Understanding of React and how state management works.
