React Training Overview

React is a popular, high-performance JavaScript library for building fast, composable user interfaces. GraphQL is a new and innovative way to query and mutate graphs of data according to the needs of the GraphQL consumer. Relay is a React/GraphQL framework which manages the querying and mutating of data for React components consuming GraphQL services.

Accelebrate’s Introduction to React/GraphQL/Relay training class teaches experienced JavaScript developers the skills they need to immediately implement React/GraphQL/Relay in their applications.
