What you'll learn

Level: Intermediate

GraphQL is powerful alternative to multiple endpoints for a REST API. When building mobile applications  and microservices, many developers now avoid the complexity of REST in favor of GraphQL simplicity. The Hasura GraphQL open source engine makes database data instantly accessible over a real-time GraphQL API.  Using Hasura Cloud and YugabyteDB Managed, in this workshop, you'll discover how to build a real-time polling application with React JS, GraphQL, and a YugabyteDB YSQL database. The workshop includes a sample application which  is available as a GitHub project.


Wanted: Developers and Architects

To get the most out of this workshop, you should have familiarity with building React JS applications using Node packages. In addition, you should be familiar with building a sample application pulled from GitHub using your favorite IDE such as IntelliJ IDEA, Visual Studio Code, or GitPod. Knowledge of SQL, YSQL, and GraphQL is helpful, but not required.
