Manage your API communication and App State with GraphQL and Apollo
Ready for some hands-on GraphQL experience? What’s the deal with this revolutionary way of querying data over HTTP? Find out during this special workshop. Front-end developer Ugur Korfali, working at KLM, will dive into the benefits, how-to and combination of GraphQL and Apollo. Learn how to manage your API communication and App State with the technologies that are driving next-gen webapps. In the workshop, we will use real-life data from Schiphol’s Public API.
Are you unfamiliar with GraphQL and Apollo? GraphQL is a query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. It’s open sourced by Facebook in 2015 and is a powerful alternative to building a REST API with various endpoints to request data. Apollo provides a universal GraphQL API on top of existing services. Apollo Client is a fully-featured caching GraphQL client with integrations for React, Angular, and more. It allows you to easily build UI components that fetch data via GraphQL.
