Course Description

GraphQL is an API query-language from Facebook, designed to describe the complex, nested data dependencies of modern web applications whereas Apollo is an open-source GraphQL toolkit. It is quickly becoming the standard for API development.

This hands-on course gets you started with the basics of GraphQL, its various features and its differences from REST. Then you will step ahead to learn the implementation of GraphQL and React using a relay for networking with the latest technologies and working examples & also create truly decoupled client and server. Moving further, you will learn to build an end-to-end full stack application as well as how to overcome challenges & problems and fix them via GraphQL's unique features by testing your application's frontend and backend.

Contents and Overview

This training program includes 3 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.

The first course, Learning Apollo GraphQL will help you get started with using Apollo GraphQL. This is a practical course where you will understand GraphQL and its concepts via examples. After an introduction to GraphQL and its differences from REST, you will cover ideal scenarios in which to use GraphQL in your projects. You will cover its features and understand what Apollo is. You will delve into the Apollo platform, which comprises the client, engine, and servers. You will cover all their features with the help of examples. You will look at core GraphQL topics such as schema design and its query language. You will also cover a few intermediate-level topics to raise the level of the course. By the end of the course, you will be confident about using Apollo GraphQL or your web development requirements.

The second course, Learning GraphQL with React and Relay you will learn about GraphQL and how we can use it to create truly decoupled client and server. Writing backend with GraphQL makes our code more declarative wherein the client demands certain data in a particular format and the server responds in a predictable manner. This enables us to evolve our API without versions and iterate on features faster. For front-end and networking, we will use Facebook’s React and Relay respectively. We will learn GraphQL by creating a backend for a blog platform. You will learn about GraphQL schema design, authentication, pagination, testing, query batching and more and how to connect a GraphQL backend to React and Relay client. The course will teach everything to get up and running with GraphQL and React.

The third course, Hands-On Full-Stack Web Development with GraphQL and React is a hands-on guide that will help you build a strong full-stack using React and Apollo GraphQL. After a quick introduction to GraphQL and its toolkit, Apollo, you will start to build an end-to-end full stack application in a step-by-step manner, section by section. You'll create a feature-rich shopping cart app. Using a practical approach, you'll understand the benefits of using GraphQL on your client, engine, and server and use React for the backend in your stack. You'll cover challenges and problems and fix them via GraphQL's unique features. After your stack is complete, you will test your application's frontend and backend. Finally, you will deploy your full-stack application. By the end of the course, you will be proficient in using GraphQL and React to all your full-stack development requirements.
