Reach for the Stars with Apollo

by Harry Wolff

Published January 18, 2017 in Programming

React scandalized the JavaScript community by challenging assumptions that co-locating templates and styles within JavaScript violated separation of concerns. This trend continues with Apollo, a full-stack spec compliant implementation of GraphQL built on top of Redux, that positions data requirements alongside view components.

You’re going to come away from this talk with an understanding of GraphQL and why it improves upon REST, how to create an Apollo server that connects to your database, and how to add Apollo to your React components. Apollo simplifies and streamlines the contract between client and server, enabling rapid app development and iteration.
