Eve goes over the process of using the exercise files for the course. The start and finish folders contain text files that can be opened in any text editing program.
- [Instructor] This course has a set of exercise files that you can download and follow along with. This will allow you to work alongside me in the exact same files that I'll be working on. In the exercise files folder, you're going to find folders for every chapter and then there will be a subfolder for all of the videos. Each video folder has a start and a finish folder. So when the video begins I'll start with the start file, and when the video ends I'll end with the completed file. All of the code in this class will be GraphQL queries and mutations so you won't need to set up an IDE or really anything else.
These queries will be stored in text files so you'll be able to open them on any computer without any setup. Finally, we'll be using a web browser, so you can just pick whichever one of those that you'd like. The setup for this course is very painless, so with that let's get started learning GraphQL.
In this course, learn how to get started with GraphQL. Eve Porcello walks through the basics of this query language, diving into the data fetching specification, and helping you get up to speed with the syntax and vocabulary of GraphQL. Eve explains how to create basic queries, including how to work with arguments and multiple fields. She also goes into complex techniques for handling data, including working with aliases, fragments, and pagination. Plus, she covers how to edit and transform data with mutations.
