GraphQL is a query language for APIs that enables developers to request data from multiple sources in a single request. It provides an alternative to traditional REST API requests, allowing developers to access data from multiple different sources in a single request. GraphQL is also more efficient than traditional REST API requests, as it only retrieves the data that is requested by the client. This makes it easier for developers to manage and optimize their applications.

GraphQL for React Developers
Featured Workshop
There are many advantages to using GraphQL as a datasource for frontend development, compared to REST APIs. We developers in example need to write a lot of imperative code to retrieve data to display in our applications and handle state. With GraphQL you cannot only decrease the amount of code needed around data fetching and state-management you'll also get increased flexibility, better performance and most of all an improved developer experience. In this workshop you'll learn how GraphQL can improve your work as a frontend developer and how to handle GraphQL in your frontend React application.

Fullstack Type-Safety with GraphQL and Hasura
Workshop
In this workshop, we’ll learn how to build a type-safe chain from API to the client with generated TypeScript tooling. Creating a type-safe environment for development reduces the number of bugs that get shipped to production, but also creates faster feature development once the ground-work is in place.

This will be a fast-paced workshop covering an opinionated stack of features, but in the end, you’ll have a functioning framework for eloquent and type-safe development.

Table of contents

- We’ll begin creating a GraphQL API on Hasura Cloud and define some basic access controls and actions.
- Then we’ll scaffold a TypeScript-ready framework with NextJs.
- With the framework and API in place, we’ll generate an SDK using GraphQL Zeus.
- Lastly, we’ll generate some type-safe state management wrappers with easy-peasy for implementing a basic login and authentication flow.
