It's an awesome course which helps a ton in understanding the basics and motivations of GraphQL - very recommended and I keep coming back to it!However it would be super great if it could update with time and add apollo-server, apollo client react hooks etc.

Stephen is an excellent instructor. His delivery is smooth and clear. He clearly explains each step of the development process and technology used. I recommend Stephen and this class to anyone interested in the tying GraphQL and React together.


Very good and on point. Makes jumping in graphql easy.Only bad thing too many libraries and dependencies,and they change over time so some refreshing on dependencies and the errors which come with the changes in api's being used will be welcome.

Needs an urgent update! GraphQL has moved forward a lot since this course was done. I'm frustrated as I completed the course and now I'm unable to build a mid-size app using what I learned.

Great Instructor, who goes through the in and outs of using GraphQL. During the course we wrote two full stack apps that utilize GraphQL and as a student you could easily follow the great instructions and could code along. The only real downside to this course is, that it is a bit outdated (which Stephen already mentioned in the course, by expecting Apollo-Client to have big changes after the course is published ). Also some of the source code in the material provided have some bugs, so you can't run them before fixing them. (Solutions for those are provided by people in the comments!) For me, the course was good. The thing that frustrated me the most, was the bugs I encountered in the material. I have a good understanding of GraphQL now and will continue with the official documentation.

I think the pacing and the content is great! After completing it, and having added these new tools and ideas to my toolbox, I am left wondering what better ways there are to auth a Reaect App and GraphQL. Incredible course all around. Thank you!

Very basic and repetitive, using old constructs for react components (class components, state, etc.) and outdated apollo library. This course should be updated with updated graphql libraries, react hooks and, ideally, TypeScript.

pros:- Stephen Grider is a great teacher, he explains everything as expected, we all know/love him obviously : >- generally, it's a really good course, gives you lots of basics for both React and GraphQL- example projects are simply good examples of what can be done with React/GraphQLcons:- if you really want to learn GraphQL, I mean, not just basic of basics, it's not what you're looking for, there is nothing about designing schema, rather than having few types with some relations between- totally outdated dependencies, for example if you upgrade apollo client form 0.x to 2.0, project simply won't work, super easy to fix, but still

As Stephen's other courses, he did well on this course too. He explained the concepts one by one and used diagrams to imagine and understand what projects we are building. Course can be updated with newest approaches but it is good for solid graphql-react foundations.

Easy to follow and slowly introduces the concepts of GraphQL and Apollo. Some of the syntax and node packages are a little out of date but still great content.

old version of apollo and no react hooks use, but very good to understand the concepts to implement whichever version we want to implement.
