Django with GraphQL
What you'll learn
- Basics of Django Framework
- Basics of GraphQL
- How to build GraphQL API with Django
- Basic knowledge of python
We will learn what is GraphQL, what are pros and cons of using it. We will talk about the main concept in GraphQL like schemas, types, queries, mutations and subscriptions.
In the first section we will create plain Django project. This is introduction to Django framework and none previous knowledge is required.
Once the project will be setup we will add GraphQL. In that way you will be able to follow along with either your own Django project or simple project we have created together in the first section. I will explain how to create a root schema and how to create schemas for apps. Also we will implement new Django url to use graphiql: the UI to perform or queries and mutations. Once GraphQL is ready we will add Types, Queries and Mutations. I will show you different ways to write these and explain why we might use one option over another.
After we will have a solid understanding of the GraphQL and how it is connected with Django, we will dive deeper and add some extras like: Token Authentication (JWT), Relay implementations, Filters, Pagination etc.
We will finish the course with the samples how to use our backend GraphQL API with front end applications based on both React and Angular. We will have 2 separate application that will fetch data from our Django Database using our graphql API. We will use apollo library on the front end.

I'm a self-educated Full-stack developer.
I have a master's degree in social psychology and I was working as a child therapist for a few years. Due to the decisions, I made in my life - to move to another country I had to give up my profession and find something different.
I started with programming 6 years ago with simple HTML and CSS websites. Shortly I become a freelancer using mostly flash platform. I got my first full-time position as Front-end developer few years ago.
Since I started with programming I learn new technologies every single day. And I strongly believe that's a key to success.
