GraphQL provides clients the power to ask for what they need and get exactly that in a single request. This course will teach you the skills to consume and interact with GraphQL APIs using Apollo Client and React.

Finally, you’ll learn how to write mutations to modify and update the GraphQL data. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge to build frontend applications that can consume GraphQL API using the Apollo client.
