Performant GraphQL Backend in 1 Day Using Hasura Engine 2022


Basic understanding of Docker
Basic understanding of what is GraphQL
Little experience in Web Development


Literally, it is the most extensive and most detailed course about Hasura you can find on Internet so far and it was awarded “Content of the Year” at the HasuraCon 2022!———————————-“This is by far the best course, I have taken on Udemy. The instructor solved my queries in a day or two. I am waiting for the next course from the instructor. Top-notch quality.” -Ankur SharmaIf you’re a developer struggling with GraphQL because of its complexity… or simply because it takes too much time, this is going to be the most exciting news for you.Listen, If I told you… that you can take your existing Relational Database and turn it into a powerful GraphQL API in a matter of seconds…Or… build a performant GraphQL backend from start to finish in a couple of hours with very little to no coding…Would you be interested?My name is Dmytro Mezhenskyi.And even with 9 years of experience as a web developer and teacher, I couldn’t get over the amount of time it takes to complete my GraphQL APIs.I found that most of my time was wasted on mundane repetitive tasks. Tasks like writing the CRUD code over and over again… for every single entity in the database.And it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or expert in GraphQL… it still takes up way too much time.In that time, you could’ve already had your project up and running. And you could’ve done it without the stress from the deadline creeping in and your boss breathing down your neck.Two years ago, I started searching for solutions to make GraphQL development more “automated” and I came across Hasura. It had a lot of issues back then but it still felt like a revelation for me.And you’ll feel the same way about it too in just a minute.Because… when you learn how to use Hasura, you’ll be able to create your GraphQL backends easier and faster than you ever thought possible without writing a single line of code! And you don’t have to take my word for it…Here’s what other developers are saying about Hasura:————————————————————————–“Wow. @HasuraHQ is seriously impressive. I just set up an entire backend (database, GraphQL API, authentication, authorization) in less than an hour without ever touching a terminal!” – Cole Bemis“Check out @HasuraHQ, this is crazy s*#&!. I can write a whole application powered by GraphQL without writing a line of backend code!” – Thomas Heyenbrock“I just tried @HasuraHQ for the first time and my mind is genuinely blown. I built a fully deployed GraphQL setup that would have taken me hours normally in like 30 seconds. It’s incredible how fast the developer ecosystem evolves.” – Ali Spittel—————————————————————————–And the crazy thing is… MOST developers don’t even know about it! When I started creating my GraphQL APIs using Hasura, it took me a couple of months to get the hang of it and even more time to master it because I didn’t have anyone to teach me the nuts and bolts back then.But even with all that effort, it was absolutely worth it!In fact, in all my years of web development, no other tool has been more useful.And that’s why I created this course, the most comprehensive course on Hasura with: 9 segments, 80 lectures and 6.5+ hours packed with engaging content that’ll allow you to master Hasura in the shortest time possible.It covers all the basics, and the more advanced features, and dives into all the little details that I wish I knew when I started using Hasura.When you’re done with this course, you’ll be able to use every functionality to create your GraphQL backends effortlessly in record time.Here’s what other students are saying about this course:——————————————————————————————-“Wow, the best course on Hasura you will ever find!” – Shimon Wosner“I’m halfway through the course and absolutely enjoying it! This is the easiest starting with GraphQL ever. Thank you and keep it up!” – Daria Lazurenko“Exactly what I was looking for to up-skill for Hasura, assuming we go Hasura for our next project I will be recommending this course for all DevOps, API developers, and UI Developers on the project!” – Joseph D Garrepy——————————————————————————————-In the first few sections of this course, you’ll learn things like:…How to let the CRUD code write itself without you even touching your keyboard.…How to play with all the different features in Hasura using the “playground” approach.…How to easily navigate through the most common errors that can cost you a huge chunk of your time if you don’t know about them.…And A LOT more.But there are a few things you should keep in mind…1. There is no fluff in this course… we’ll be diving right in without wasting any time.2. This is not just a “what to do” guide. You’ll be learning about the concepts behind what we are doing. The “why.”3. If we need to write any code to extend Hasura’s functionality, I’ll be writing along with you so that it’s easier to follow through. This is NOT a “copy-paste some spaghetti code” type of course. We’ll dissect every little feature Hasura has to offer and how you can use it to your advantage.Along the way, you’ll discover things like:· The best way to secure your Hasura endpoint and the mistakes you must avoid.· When you should extend business logic and exactly how to do it· The one thing that you CAN NOT miss when you’re doing database migrations (If you don’t want other developers to hate you)How do you go through this course?1- Go through the different segments, one at a time, taking a 10-minute break in between each segment to let your brain soak in all the information you learned. DO NOT watch it all in one go. It’s tempting but it might overwhelm your brain…2- Play along with me. If you just watch without doing anything, you’ll learn a lot… but I designed this course with easy step-by-step instructions so you can get the maximum value by following along with me. Note: Hasura will be really fun when you know your way around it.3- If any concept seems a bit confusing, rewind the lecture and watch it again, this time paying attention to the subtle important explanations. If you do this, you’ll start feeling a lot more comfortable with Hasura as a whole.4- Refer back to the course if you’re stuck at any point with a project you’re working on. The course is divided into small lectures so you can quickly go through the one you need.Important to noteI am constantly updating this course with Hasura’s latest features so that everything you’re learning is up-to-date. I am also further polishing it using your feedback to include deployment, and examples with your favorite front-end frameworks. While that sounds great, it also means that the course’s value is always increasing and so the price might go up as well in the near future.The only way you can guarantee yourself lifetime access to all the available AND future lessons at the current price is if you enroll in the course right now.Enjoy!-Dmytro Mezhenskyi
