GraphQL Classroom Training

Looking to sharpen your GraphQL skills before attending Summit? All attendees also have the option to enroll in all-day classroom training (Fundamentals or Advanced level) on Tuesday, Oct 24.

GraphQL Fundamentals

Get up and running with GraphQL, learning the GraphQL language as well as how to implement it in an app to unify all of your data sources – including multiple databases and web APIs – in a single intuitive API.

  • Why use GraphQL?
  • GraphQL syntax
  • Introduction to Apollo Client
  • Sending queries on the client
  • Triggering mutations on the client
  • Introduction to Apollo Server
  • Writing type definitions
  • Mapping types to data with resolver functions

Advanced GraphQL

Get the latest techniques and tools that will take your GraphQL to the next level, improving performance, user experience, and manageability. This course is for developers already familiar with building apps with GraphQL and assumes knowledge of GraphQL syntax and basic app architecture.

  • Imperative client cache updates with update API
  • Optimistic UI in response to a mutation
  • Setting up server-side rendering
  • GraphQL subscriptions
  • Caching and batching GraphQL operations with Dataloader
  • Schema stitching
  • Monitoring a GraphQL API with Apollo Optics
  • Setting up Apollo tracing & other advanced production tools

Both classes are hands-on; you will implement a working Node/React app. You will need basic development skills and a working knowledge of JavaScript to get the most out of the class, but the GraphQL concepts we learn will apply to any environment.
