Workshop: Fullstack GraphQL using React

9:00am-5:00pm on 6/14

Register for Workshop

In this full day training we will cover everything you need to successfully adopt GraphQL across your full stack from client to backend including tooling and best practices learned from top company engineers (Twitter, TopTable and graphcool).
You will learn how to build and design a GraphQL Server starting by defining the GraphQL Schema using types and relations. Moving to the client side, we will describe the differences between Relay Modern and Apollo Clients. As we implement the different features we will introduce GraphQL query syntax including queries, mutations, alias, fragments and directives. At this point we will review how client and server communicate, what tooling is available to track usage and improve performance and how to add authorisation and authentication. Finally we will focus on designing real-time features and sharing best practices to improve performance and leverage scalability.

Topics we will cover:

  • GraphQL Introduction
  • Building a GraphQL Server
  • Designing a GraphQL Schema
  • Differences between Relay Modern and Apollo Client
  • Building a GraphQL Client using queries and mutations
  • Common practices: error handling, polling and pagination
  • Adding authentication and authorisation
