About this course

This is a course that will teach you everything you need to build a full stack application with React.js and GraphQL.

Together we build an online store called Sick Fits.

It's GraphQL API with Node.js on the backend and React and Apollo on the front end.

We cover everything from authentication and sending email to uploading photos and caching data. The entire front-end is built in modern React.js and GraphQL.

I'm also happy to announce that the course has almost six hours of testing videos included in the master package. Testing is something I've had requests for a long time and I'm really excited to deliver on some good quality testing material.

What Will You Build?

Together we will build "Sick Fits", a full stack online clothing store complete with real credit checkout. Users can search, sell, add to cart and checkout their favourite items.

The application has five main models — Users, Items, Orders, CartItems, and OrderItems — all of which are relational and showcase the power of relational GraphQL Queries.

The app also includes many server side bits including JWT authentication, permissions, sending email, uploading images, and charging credit cards.

In addition to building both the frontend and backend of the application, we also spend the last ⅓ of the course Testing the React application.

For a full list of topics covered, see below.

In each video, we learn and implement a concept into our application. Many of the concepts we return to over and over for different parts of the application, hitting and solving new problems each time.

As we build an entire full-stack application, this course covers a ton. Along with general JavaScript best practices, here are some of the things you can expect to learn:
