Included topics
A general overview of what's going to be included in the workshop
We'll learn everything about the GraphQL schema, queries, and mutations. During the first half of the workshop, we'll explain the basics of GraphQL, the anatomy of a GraphQL schema, how resolvers work, and we’re gonna build a GraphQL server.
We’ll connect our GraphQL server to a React application with Apollo Client. We’ll break down the modular architecture of the client and teach you how to set everything up and use queries and mutations. We’ll show two different approaches for working with Apollo: Render Props and hooks.

What are the prerequisites for this workshop?
  • Good knowledge of JavaScript, and most of the new ES6 features

Yes. You need the following tools and libraries on your machine:
