About the workshop
GraphQL is changing the way that we think about data in our applications. So what does this mean for front-end developers and specifically React developers?
In this hands-on workshop, we’ll take a closer look at how to power up your applications with GraphQL and related tooling. We’ll start with an overview of GraphQL core concepts. Then we’ll learn how to fetch data from a GraphQL API with lightweight clients. From there, we’ll get into Apollo Client and how to use hooks for data fetching in components. Finally, we’ll look at how to automate your workflow with TypeScript and codegen.
In this workshop, we will cover:
- GraphQL Overview
- Understanding GraphQL Clients
- Setting Up Apollo Client
- Fetching Data in React Components
- Apollo Codegen with TypeScript
You will get most out of this workshop if you:
- Are comfortable with React
- Have at least a vague idea of how web frontends talk to backends
We’ll explain everything we use, but won’t go into details on the very basics. This is an intermediate workshop.
PS: you’ll need a working laptop set up for React development (node v10+, npm, editor etc)
