GraphQL Workshop in Seattle

Interested in GraphQL but you’re not sure where to get started? In this two-day workshop, you'll learn GraphQL from the ground up. We'll start with an overview of graph theory and will learn how to write queries and mutations. Once we understand how to interact with a GraphQL endpoint, you will design your own schema and implement your own GraphQL services with Node.js and Express. Upon leaving this course, students will be ready to build full stack applications with JavaScript, GraphQL, Apollo, and React.
