Spend a full day learning everything you need to create a GraphQL API on the server in Node.js with Scott Moss.

Key Takeaways

By participating along with us in the workshop, you'll learn:

  • Learn the basics of setting up a GraphQL server with Express.js through a hands-on “Hello World” example.
  • Understand how to define and align GraphQL schemas with your database schemas, particularly for PostgreSQL.
  • Master the creation and organization of resolvers for optimized data fetching and mutations.
  • Explore advanced techniques to enhance the performance and scalability of your GraphQL server.
  • Implement authentication strategies within your GraphQL API for secure data handling.

Is This Workshop for Me?

Targeted at JavaScript and Node.js developers familiar with database operations, this course aims to elevate skills in creating efficient and scalable GraphQL APIs.

Workshop Details

This workshop is dedicated to teaching the intricacies of developing a server-side GraphQL API using Node.js, starting with a simple Express.js integration and evolving into complex schema designs and resolver optimizations. Attendees will dive deep into the practical aspects of GraphQL, including schema alignment with databases, performance optimizations, and security implementations. Engineers will leave with the confidence to build, optimize, and secure robust GraphQL APIs.

Any Prerequisites?

  • Proficient in JavaScript and Node.js.
