GraphQL is a query language for your APIs that can make data fetching simpler and more declarative. There’s a lot of hype around the technology, but how do you get started? And how do you actually use GraphQL to make your life easier as a developer?
In this two-day workshop, you’ll learn GraphQL from the ground up. Starting with an overview of graph theory, you will create graph diagrams and learn about GraphQL’s type system. From there, Eve and Alex will discuss how to write queries and mutations. Once we understand how to interact with a GraphQL endpoint, you will design your own schema and implement your own GraphQL services with Node.js and Express. The course will also discuss how to work with tools from the GraphQL ecosystem like Apollo and Graphcool. Then, we’ll use these to load data into a React UI. When students leave the course, they can expect to be ready to build full stack applications with GraphQL.
Alex now lives in Tahoe City, California, and he provides classroom and online-based training regularly for Yahoo, eBay, PayPal, and Stanford University, and other companies across the country. When Alex isn’t in a classroom, he spends his time developing applications, learning new technologies, and writing custom training curriculums with Moon Highway. He is also the author of O’Reilly’s Learning React and Learning GraphQL.
