Details

During this HackJam, you will learn the basics about GraphQL; the query language created by Facebook. We will give you an introduction to GraphQL and why it could be a better fit for your next web api compared to REST.

After this introduction, we will do some practices and write our own GraphQL server in JavaScript. Participants will learn:

How to define a GraphQL schema
How to create query types and implement resolver functions
How to consume the GraphQL API we have created by making queries and mutations throughout the wonderful GraphQL interface.
To better enjoy this HackJam, participants will be asked to have good knowledge of JavaScript.

Big thanks to Incentro for hosting us!
