JSMonthly January FullStack GRAND Stack (GraphQL, React, Apollo, Neo4j) Workshop

17 Jan

6:15 pm Gamesys, 10 Piccadilly, London W1J 0DD, London



Hello all,

In January we will have a workshop on Full Stack GRAND Stack Workshop: GraphQL, React, Apollo, Neo4j Database – Mark Needham


In this workshop, we explore application development using the GRAND stack (GraphQL, React, Apollo, Neo4j) for building web applications backed by a graph database. We will build the components for a simple movie recommendation web application. We’ll cover how to build a React component, an introduction to JSX, an overview of GraphQL and why it is a game-changer for front-end development, and we’ll learn how to model, store, and query data in the Neo4j graph database using GraphQL to power our web application.

The workshop consists of three modules:

1. Querying a Neo4j database of movies and user reviews (/neo4j-database)
2. Building a GraphQL API using the queries written from 1. (/graphql)
3. Connect a React app frontend to query the GraphQL API from 2. (/react-apollo)

Each module has a skeleton begin state that the attendees start with and modify to complete each exercise. The GitHub project can be cloned and development can be done locally (both begin and end/completed states of each module are checked in) or done using hosted services like Neo4j Sandbox, Apollo Launchpad and CodeSandbox (there are begin/end state versions for each of these as well) to avoid setting up local dev environments.

Please give enough notice if you cant make the event, we put a lot of effort to get the speakers and organise and we want to get full rooms.

We are doing another amazing meetup together with GraphDB (https://www.meetup.com/graphdb-london/) meet ups. We would like to thank our sponsors Gamesys (http://www.gamesyscorporate.com/), and Trunomi (http://trunomi.com) for helping us with our events!! We expect all our members, sponsors, event organisers and anyone involved on our meetup to follow our Code of Conduct.
