We really like our job.
At corporations, we’ve taught thousands of engineers how to work more efficiently with the latest tools and language features.
On Lynda/LinkedIn Learning, we’ve released 10 courses on React, React Native, Redux, ES6, GraphQL, and Node.js. (Alex’s Node.js Essential Training alone has been viewed over a million times 😱).
For O’Reilly, we wrote Learning React, a guide to writing React and Redux applications. We’re currently working on our second book, Learning GraphQL.
Learning GraphQL can feel like a daunting task. Just as React changed the game by giving us a new way to create user interfaces, GraphQL marks a huge shift in how we fetch data and think about our APIs. With GraphQL queries, we can make one request and get all of the data that we need in one response. Among the many benefits of GraphQL, this reduces overfetching and underfetching which can lead to performance problems in our applications.
As the GraphQL ecosystem expands rapidly, it can be tricky to figure out where to get started. Writing a few queries with the Star Wars API using GraphiQL seems fun, but how do you actually implement GraphQL in real-world projects? Well, there’s a new class for that!
Introducing GraphQL Workshop!
Join Us On Tour!
We’ve added several public workshops to the calendar for this spring and summer in Portland, Seattle, San Jose (as part of O’Reilly’s Fluent Conference), Charlotte, and Houston. We’re also offering this workshop as a private corporate training if you’d like to bring the class onsite for your engineering teams.
Early bird tickets are available now, and more details can be found on our website at www.graphqlworkshop.com. If you have any questions at all, let us know on Twitter (@eveporcello or @moontahoe) or email us anytime (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Now’s the time to master GraphQL. We can’t wait to see you in class!
