Do you want to learn GraphQL and keep your Node.js skills up-to-date and relevant?
GraphQL is quickly changing how Node.js developers write their APIs and backend applications. It offers a much-needed replacement to the traditional REST HTTP API. It’s by far the most exciting change we’ve seen to Node.js development in a long time. Goodbye Express. Hello GraphQL.
Who should learn GraphQL? Anyone building backend applications with Node.js!
In this class, you’ll learn how to use GraphQL to replace the standard Express HTTP API, as well as support features like authentication, real-time applications, and more. GraphQL can be used with any client that has internet access, whether it’s a web app, mobile app, or server-side application.
Big and small companies, from Twitter and Facebook to Yelp and Twitch, are switching from frameworks like Express to GraphQL.
I designed this class to give you the skills and real-world experience needed to build and launch your own GraphQL apps.
To kick the class off, we’ll answer a few important questions. What is GraphQL? Why is it useful? How is GraphQL going to help me build better applications with Node.js?
Next, you’ll master the fundamentals of GraphQL by building out a blogging application. You’ll learn about GraphQL schemas, data types, queries, mutations, subscriptions, and many other fantastic GraphQL features.
From there, you’ll set up advanced features like authentication, database storage, production deployment, automated test suites, and more.
Throughout the course you’ll learn how to:
Model your application data using schemas
Create queries and subscriptions allowing clients to access data in the database
Create mutations allowing clients to create and change data in the database
Query and change your data from the browser by making requests with Apollo Client
Work with the Prisma ORM (v1) to communicate with your database via a GraphQL API
Deploy your GraphQL applications to production
Secure your application data with an authentication system
Write an automated test suite for your application
Learn GraphQL by Writing Code
This course was designed to be interactive, with more than 80 challenges along the way to get you writing code and solving problems on your own. This will give you the real-world skills and experience needed to write GraphQL applications once you’re done with the class.
Everything you need comes in one easy-to-use package.
There’s no need to worry whether you’re learning the right skills to land that GraphQL job or launch that GraphQL app. I’ve mapped out everything you need to know in an interactive, easy-to-follow package designed to get you up and running in a couple of weeks.
Get access to fast support if you get stuck.
There’s nothing worse than getting stuck ten hours into a course and not getting the help you need to continue. Getting stuck is part of the learning process. That’s why I’m here to answer every single question.
I guarantee this is the most up-to-date and engaging GraphQL course available, and it comes with a Udemy 30-day money-back guarantee.
The first videos are available as a free preview, so I’ll see you inside the class!
