Just as React has transformed the way we build web applications, GraphQL is changing how we build APIs to query and mutate data.

With a focus on modern JavaScript and real world application, this course is a start-to-finish way to learn Full Stack Advanced React, Next.js, GraphQL, Node.js and friends.

Join me as I show you how to build a full stack online store with some of today’s top JavaScript technology.

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 six main models — Users, Items, Orders, CartItems, OrderItems, and Roles — all of which are relational and showcase the power of relational GraphQL Queries.

The app also includes many server side bits including 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 section of the course Testing the React application.

The Tech Stack of our Application


For Building The Interface along with:

  • Next.js for server side rendering, routing and tooling
  • Styled Components for styling
  • Context for Managing Local State
  • Apollo’s React Hooks for interfacing with Apollo Client
  • Jest & React Testing Library for Testing

Apollo Client

For Data Management

  • Performing GraphQL Mutations(create, update, delete)
  • Fetching data via GraphQL Queries
  • Caching GraphQL Data
  • Error and Loading UI States
  • Apollo Client replaces the need for redux + data fetching/caching libraries


A Node.js based GraphQL Server + Headless CMS For:

  • Admin Interface to manage data
  • Provides a set of GraphQL CRUD APIs for a MongoDB or Prisma Database
  • Schema Definition
  • Data Relationships
  • Open Source + Self-hosted
  • Built with Node.js, React + Next.js
  • Implementing Query and Mutation Resolvers
  • Custom Server Side Logic
  • Charging Credit Cards with Stripe
  • Sending Email
  • Performing Authentication
  • Managing + Checking Roles + Permissions

GraphQL is a type-safe query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data.

What?! It’s a replacement for (or addition to) your REST API and Ajax Calls.

GraphQL requires buy-in from both your client and your server — it then puts the power of requesting only what you want into the client and the business logic of finding and filtering that data into backend resolvers.

Specifically in this course it enables libraries that make caching, loading, error handling and pagination a breeze

Complex Relational Data queries and server-side mutations like signing up or checking-out are a snap with GraphQL.

GraphQL is just a standard and can be implemented in any language or framework.

Covered Concepts

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:

  • React Best Practices
  • Custom Hooks
  • Server Side Rendering
  • Styled Components
  • Theming
  • Routing
  • GraphQL Schema
  • Queries and Mutations
  • Authentication
  • Resolvers
  • Cache Management
  • Loading and Error States
  • Sending Email
  • Logic and Flow with Async + Await
  • Authentication and Permissions
  • Charging Credit Cards
  • Hosting and Transforming Images
  • Pagination
  • Forms in React
  • Animations
  • Third party React Components
  • Unit Testing
