Workshops

GraphQL workshop
By Eve Porcello
At Central London ( Venue TBC)

Learn to build fullstack applications in a day using GraphQL and Apollo in this practical, fast-paced course. Starting with the schema, students will create a GraphQL API using Apollo Server 2.0. Then we’ll use this data within a React user interface using Apollo Client and React Apollo. The course will feature a range of hands-on activities and labs to ensure that students can take these skills back to their own projects right away.

Topics will include:

  • The GraphQL query language
  • GraphQL schema design
  • Designing an API with Apollo Server
  • Connecting to a database
  • Apollo Client
  • React Apollo

You will need a laptop and a working knowledge of JavaScript and React to get the most out of the course, but the GraphQL concepts you’ll learn will apply to any environment.
