Learn GraphQL by building full-stack web applications with Prisma, NodeJs, Apollo Client v2, and React.Js
What Is GraphQL?
GraphQL is a query language for your APIs. It’s also a runtime for fulfilling queries with your data.
Who is this course for?
This course is for most programmers. If you write software that fetches data from a server, or you write server code that provides data to others, this course is for you. It’s particularly relevant to frontend and backend web and mobile developers.
This course will be especially poignant to these groups of people:
- Backend devs who work on REST APIs and write a lot of similar data-fetching code, or who maintain view-specific endpoints.
- Frontend devs of medium- or large-sized apps who either: A) don’t use a caching library, and manually keep track of what data has already been fetched from the server, or B) use a cache, and write a lot of code to fetch data over REST and put it in the cache.
What are the drawbacks of REST?
When GraphQL was first released, some touted it as a replacement to REST. “REST is dead!” early adopters cried, and then encouraged us all to throw a shovel in the trunk and drive our unsuspecting REST APIs out to the woods. This was great for getting clicks on blogs and starting conversations at conferences, but painting GraphQL as a REST killer is an oversimplification. A more nuanced take is that as the web has evolved, REST has shown signs of strain under certain conditions. GraphQL was built to ease the strain.”
