CouchDB is a document store style database. GraphQL is more focused on the API layer (how do I query any underlying data sources for exactly the data I need) instead of tying you into one particular database. So, in theory, some of your GraphQL objects might live in CouchDB but others might live in PostgreSQL or a file store.

Ok, that's pretty cool

Thank you for the insight!

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
