GraphQL, a query language for your APIs, is touted as a replacement to REST and a solution to common data fetching problems. But when you actually try to get started, it can feel completely overwhelming. Do you have to use Apollo or Relay? Do you need to use a certain frontend library? Most importantly, do you have to burn your entire API architecture to the ground to use this new stuff?
Eve Porcello offers a live-coding walk-through of GraphQL, giving you the foundation to build your own GraphQL servers. Starting with an empty folder, you’ll learn how to stand up and query a GraphQL server using Node.js. Along the way, Eve covers GraphQL schemas and explains how to incrementally adopt GraphQL at your organization.
