Building a real world, scalable & production-ready GraphQL API is hard. In this course, we’ll learn how to create a production-ready GraphQL API that can handle everything from queries to mutations & subscriptions. We’ll also connect to our API from a React application and execute queries, mutations & subscriptions using the new API.

Instructor: [00:01] The goal of this course on AWS AppSync is to show you how to build a real-world scalable GraphQL API from the ground up. We'll start by creating a new API and the AWS AppSync dashboard. We'll create a schema with types, queries, mutations, and subscriptions.

[00:17] We'll use the built-in graphical editor in the AWS AppSync console to test out queries and mutations. Once we are done creating the API, we'll create a new React application and configure the React application to work with our AWS AppSync API.

[00:32] We'll use the AWS AppSync Apollo client to execute queries and mutations against the new API. We'll also [inaudible] features like subscriptions and an optimistic response, and then show how to make the application offline ready.

[00:47] By the end of this course, you will have a good understanding of how to create real-time offline ready React applications using AWS AppSync.

Nice course. I was new to graphQL but it's straightforward enough that everything made sense. Maybe could use a bit of an explanation as to the different npm modules, but nothing that we can't find on our own with a bit of googling
