In this course we will learn some of the basics of getting data into and out of Neo4J, as well as touch on some of the libraries and tooling available in the Neo4J community ecosystem, which we will leverage to quickly create and use a full-featured GraphQL API.

We will start by learning how to run and interact with Neo4J locally. Then we will develop a graph model in which to store the data that we pull from SWAPI via REST. We will then create an Apollo GraphQL API driven by a few simple schemas which fit into this model. We will then write some simple code to crawl SWAPI and insert the data into Neo4J through our GraphQL API. Once there is data in the store, we will learn about some of the features in neo4j-graphql-js that make connecting and accessing our graph Nodes easier.

This classic course gives you a great, basic introduction to how to build your API with GraphQL and Neo4J. The only small change is the Star Wars API has changed from https://swapi.co/ to https://swapi.dev/.

    very quick introduction to neo4j + graphql, however a bit lacking in depth.

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    Try out Neo4J with my current GraphQL projects. The videos assumed quite a lot which is great for egghead style videos but it feels like a little more needs to be explained when deailing with graph databases

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    The code scrolls by on screen way too fast to understand out what is happening. I need to play each video several times and pause to figure it out.

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    There is not enough data for me to understand it. Can we do something for deeper dive into neo4j database ?

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    Not obvious mix of GraphQL + Cypher syntaxes as plain text. Library API can provide something to make it easier. Thanks for fast track. Cheers.
