GraphQL with React

The Complete Developers Guide

Note: This course assumes you are familiar with React.

If you're tired of spinning your wheels trying to figure out what type of backend server to use, this is the course for you.

Authentication? You will learn it. Apollo Data? Included. Integration with React? Of course.

This course will get you up and running with GraphQL quickly, and teach you the core knowledge you need to deeply understand and build React applications quickly.

Both OSX and Windows supported.

We'll start by mastering the fundamentals of GraphQL, including data types, schemas, and integration with Express and React. Source code is provided for each lecture, so you will always stay up-to-date with the course pacing. Special attention has been paid to creating code that you'll be able to make use of on your own fantastic projects.

If you are new to GraphQL, or if you've been working to learn it but sometimes feel like you still don't quite 'get it', this is the GraphQL course for you. To learn GraphQL you have to understand it.

  • Learn how to use GraphQL's schema to define relations between your data objects
  • Learn the process of combining a backend server with a front end React
  • Master the process of thinking about your applications data in terms of a graph structure
  • Grasp the difference between GraphQL, Apollo, and Relay, and when to use each
  • Develop apps that are unique, fun, and responsive.
  • Build servers that can be used with both React and React Native applications
  • Master handling authentication with GraphQL
  • Learn the core principles of navigation with React Router and GraphQL

I've built the course that I would have wanted to take when I was learning GraphQL. A course that explains the concepts and how they're implemented in the best order for you to learn and deeply understand them.

easy to follow in 18 reviews

Like his other courses, this one is in-depth and easy to follow.

Time to be a developer and do some google digging Stephen Grider is amazing as usual taking a very methodical approach with great explanations and examples Very informative and easy to follow course.

Stephen is my favorite instructor here on Udemy for web development for the simple reason that all his courses are to the point, incredibly detailed and easy to follow., this course is no exception.

Very easy to follow along.

Also completed Stephen's Modern React With Redux course, which makes it super easy to follow along with this course.

As usual, Stephen makes learning and understanding a breeze with his very easy to follow instructions, detailed explanations, relevant graphs, and overall obvious expertise in the subject.

Stephen's delivery is relaxed and engaging which makes it easy to follow along.

apollo client in 17 reviews

The Apollo Client syntax has also changed (2.5 at time of review) with significant changes in its feature set.

Great learning experience, but the Apollo Client used was prior to 1.0 - while the current Client is at 2.x.

However this course gives a good foundation to be used with the apollo client 2.0 Stephen consistently does a great job of explaining how things work and making sure you really understand at a deep level how a piece of technology works.

The course does need updating, since the docs for the version of the Apollo Client used here are *no longer available on the web*.

It is using apollo client version 0.8, and it's on version 2.1 now.

Buen curso Good introduction to GraphQL, how it works with express & Apollo client.

i take this course for learn the GraphQL but it's Stephen magic i also get the knowledge about React and Apollo Client, Provider..Thanks for making such a beautiful course.

real world in 16 reviews

Stephen Grinder is amazing, the course is perfect, from the basic concepts to real world application, he explain so well that there is no way to get lost.

Stephen is great as a teacher, he always gives practical and real world examples that we can use on real projects Instructor and his course both are brilliant, although sometimes there are too many details (imo) brilliant like all his other lectures.

because only relatiosn that we have was company=>users so just two relations.If the relations was 3-4 that is very much more likely to occur in a real world.

The ability to create two real world applications, with a codebase that can be transitioned into our own personal projects is reason alone, for learning this course.

I enjoyed the hands-on real world approach to the problems and the practice-oriented structure.

The second app demonstrated a real world implementation of GraphQL in a React app, focusing on schema configuration and query (think SELECT) and mutation (think INSERT or UPDATE) query composition in GraphQL.

The third app is begins from a mostly pre-configured code repository with schema and backend configurations ready-made so the instructor can focus on other real world implementation strategies for caching and update problems provided by the v1 Apollo React GraphQL client library and even working around some of it's limitations.

teaching style in 11 reviews

Concepts are very well articulated and Stephen's teaching style is very hands-on and approachable.

Love Stephen's teaching style so far.

I'm a fan of Stephen's teaching style which is very detailed and frequently draws the student back to the purpose and why of what we're doing ... this is exactly why I love taking his courses - definitely got my money's worth (and then some) ... would be interested in an advanced graphql course in the future particularly if it were tied in with the whole passport.js concepts that had to be curtailed in section 12, "Delegating to the Auth Service" Great work i like that !

Best course to know the basics and some advanced tricks to GraphQL Teaching style is good, but this seems kind of dated.

So far this course is A+, and the teaching style is just as you'd expect from Stephen.

Great Teaching style Great course ... learning a lot to the point as usual tutorials are cleanly explained Pure Gold!

I do like Stephen Grider's teaching style.

need to know in 7 reviews

Thank you once again :) Edit: Having watched more of this course, the pacing for the React sections are a bit too slow considering you need to know React as a pre-requisite for this course.

He succinctly addresses what you need to know but doesn't skip any side issues without labouring them either.

Good course, covers what you need to know to get started with graphql Great course if you're just starting with GraphQL and not really sure where to start.

Just like his other courses, his teaching style is fantastic as he teaches everything that we need to know and shows us the best practices.

Shows you everything you need to know to integrate GraphQL on both the frontend and the backend.

As always, Stephen is an amazing instructor giving you everything you need to know and anticipating errors you may run into.
