Event description

Description

As part of Data Day Texas, we invite some of the best speaker/instructors to come a day early and teach workshops. In the graph space, there are few people better at teaching core graph concepts than Will Lyon and Ryan Boyd of Neo4j. We are happy that they have agreed to teach a class while in Austin.

In this workshop, we explore full stack application development using the GRANDstack (GraphQL, React, Apollo, and Neo4j Database) for building web applications backed by a graph database. During this workshop we will build a simple movie recommendation web application . We'll cover how to build a React component, an introduction to JSX, an overview of GraphQL, how to build a GraphQL service, and why it is a game-changer for front-end development, and we'll learn how to model, store, and query data in Neo4j using GraphQL and Cypher to power our web application. This workshop will be a hands on series of three modules, together building the components for a full stack web app: 1. Querying Neo4j for movie recommendations 2. Building a GraphQL service backed by Neo4j 3. Building and connecting a React frontend to a GraphQL service using Apollo Client Materials for the workshop can be found here: https://github.com/grand-stack/grand-stack-movies-workshop
