GraphQL is designed to work with data represented by a graph, and it has a powerful query syntax for traversing, retrieving, and mutating data. Learn how to use it in our new course, Build APIs With GraphQL.
What You’ll Learn
In this course, Markus Mühlberger will show you how to build a back-end GraphQL API. You’ll start by using an interactive demo server to explore the basics of GraphQL and the syntax.
Then you’ll move on to implementing your own GraphQL server—a database of information about Star Wars characters—complete with queries, custom types, mutations, and a number of other advanced GraphQL features.
Here are some free lessons from this course, as a preview of what you can expect:
Fields and Arguments in GraphQL
In this video, you’ll learn about using fields and arguments in the GraphQL query language.
Query Fragments, Variables, and Directives
There are a few special language features that will make your life with GraphQL easier, and in this video you’ll learn what they are and how to use them.
Introduction to Mutations and Introspection
An API is not always about querying data—sometimes you want to change that data. In this video, you’ll learn about mutations and the introspection system that is used for discovery.
