If business decides it needs a new field, does a developer have to go in and program it...everywhere? What I am asking is, for every change in the business, does a developer need to dig into the schema? Couldn't all this be automated in some way?

I'm not sure I understand your question @smolinari. You add a field to a type definition. That field then becomes available everywhere that type is being returned. So adding a field only requires adding it in one place.

@smolinari You only need to define types on the server, the front-end dev can simply reference the types when writing queries and mutations on the client. Your graphql server is the source of truth.
