What's this all about?

The goal of the Call Kent Podcast is to get my answers to your questions. You record your brief question (120 seconds or less) right from your browser. Then I listen to it later and give my response, and through the magic of technology (ffmpeg), our question and answer are stitched together and published to the podcast feed.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Description

Hey Kent! We've been using Hasura to generate CRUD APIs for our small team. Our existing web applications are all using Next.js, and consume the GraphQL API via Apollo Client and TypeScript hooks generated from the remote schema using graphql-code-generator. This workflow has saved us a lot of time, particularly in API development, and I love the generated type-safe hooks. After watching your new Remix content, we're very excited to try Remix as an alternative to Next, mostly to leverage the performance benefits and the effortless error boundaries within nested routes. Do you have some best practices for utilizing GraphQL queries in Remix loader functions? It would be great for us to continue to take advantage of code generation, if possible. Thank you so much!
