The Lab #5 - Scraping Airbnb.com using GraphQL
Want to travel?
The travel industry has been one of the first to be impacted by digitalization. Booking.com, one of the largest websites for booking hotels around the globe, started its operations in 1997. Edreams.com, an air travel fares aggregator, went online in 2000. Airbnb is a fifteen years old online marketplace.
All these websites have in common an high traffic volume and a huge database of data points shown to their visitors. This means that every request made by the users should be responded to in the most efficient way, to save bandwidth and time. And it's not just a case that these three websites have in common one thing: they all use GraphQL to retrieve data to the front end.
