In this talk, I’ll be walking through how to set up an AppSync project for a React web app using the Amplify cli. Along the way, I’ll touch up on how I was able to leverage AWS to quickly and efficiently utilize GraphQL. (https://github.com/aws-amplify/amplify-cli)

Topics Covered:
1. Configure amplify cli
2. Creating an api using amplify
3. How to take advantage of GraphGL Transformer (https://aws-amplify.github.io/docs/cli-toolchain/graphql?sdk=js)
4. How to use the AppSync console (https://aws.amazon.com/appsync/)
5. Understanding Data Sources and Resolvers inside AppSync
