GraphQL For Frontend Developers

There are many advantages to using GraphQL as a datasource for frontend development, compared to REST APIs. We developers in example need to write a lot of imperative code to retrieve data to display in our applications and handle state. With GraphQL you cannot only decrease the amount of code needed around data fetching and state-management you’ll also get increased flexibility, better performance and most of all an improved developer experience. In this workshop you’ll learn how GraphQL can improve your work as a frontend developer and how to handle GraphQL in your frontend React application.
