In this course, we take a look at a new data query language and runtime called GraphQL. GraphQL was designed and built at Facebook to help product developers request and receive the data they need for their mobile and web applications. GraphQL sits on top of your application’s data access layer, providing clients with the ability to explicitly specify their data requirements and the guarantee that this data won’t change.

GraphQL manages these kinds of guarantees through a mixture of its Type System and Query semantics, both of which are pieces of GraphQL that we’ll look at in this series. We’ll also take a look at Mutations, and how to make our GraphQL Servers Relay-compliant using Nodes, Edges, and Connections.

    What did you like about this course?

    I didn't fully understand what Relay was, or why I would want it. I paused the course to research it.

    Thanks Josh, awesome course!

    Sometimes you jump a bit, but with some prior GraphQL knowledge your course is perfect.

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    It seemed like there were some minor inconsistencies between the episodes. One of them were, if I remember correctly, that one of the properties on the videoType went from "watched" to "released".

    Personal preference: the editor font was way too big, so it was quite difficult to get a good overview of the code. I had to constantly go back in time because of small amounts of scrolling.

    Other than that, it was a pretty good course. Learned a lot of the underlying principals. Pace was also pretty good (for me), but maybe slightly too fast.

    Very nice job first breaking down graphQL without any framework, and then adding in the goodness that relay gives.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    It seemed a bit rushed on the last few videos about the Relay specification. A 15 second introduction as to why we are transitioning into the Relay topic would have been helpful.
