An overview of what you have learned and some pointers for developing your knowledge further.

We'll cover the following


Congratulations! You have made it to the end of this mini-course, and hopefully now feel more confident about GraphQL.

Through the past few chapters, you have learned the origins of GraphQL, how it differs from traditional REST APIs, how a schema is structured, how to build a basic server, and how to keep it secure.

You now have enough knowledge to create and maintain a simple GraphQL service and can carry that knowledge forward in your work, your next job interview, or your next side-project.

I hope that you have found this mini-course useful, and I encourage you to keep reading about GraphQL. I have put some extra resources below, which may be of use.
