GraphQL is indeed changing the way APIs are built and many companies and developers are already adopting it because of the great features it introduces over REST. This is a practical course where you'll learn GraphQL by building a fully-featured API for a forum completely scratch. We'll start with a gentle introduction to GraphQL and look at some of its improvements over REST, then we gradually move on to building a GraphQL API. This course does not only teach you how to build a real-world GraphQL API from scratch but also some of the best practices from the GraphQL community.
