    Interesting, I've just been researching Dataloader implementations for Ruby and have between trying to decide between GraphQL::Dataloader, graphql-batch and BatchLoader. I'll give this a look as well. Can you also make API calls inside the loaders?

    This is mainly addressed in the last thing but we cache pretty heavily on our REST APIs and for GraphQL we use the graphql-batch gem pretty heavily. Those two things can go a long way. Make sure you're using an APM like Scout to keep an eye on things and then debug the outliers.
