Few of us recently discussed [1] how GraphQL [2], the next evolution 
from REST, could transform OpenStack APIs for the better.
Effectively we believe OpenStack APIs provide perfect use cases for 
GraphQL DSL approach, to bring among other advantages, better 
performance and stability, easier developments and consumption, and with 
GraphQL Schema provide automation capabilities never achieved before.

The API SIG suggested to start an API GraphQL Proof of Concept (PoC) to 
demonstrate the capabilities before eventually extend GraphQL to other 
Neutron has been selected for the PoC because of its specific data model.

So if you are interested, please join us.
For those who can make it, we'll also discuss this during the SIG API 
BoF at OpenStack Summit at Vancouver [3]
