In this tutorial, you learned how to build a GraphQL server from scratch. The stack you used was based on Node.js, apollo-server and Prisma.

apollo-server is a fast and simple GraphQL server library built on top of Express.js. It comes with several features, such as out-of-the-box support for GraphQL Playgrounds and realtime GraphQL subscriptions.

The resolvers of your GraphQL server are implemented using Prisma Client which is responsible for database access.

If you want to dive deeper and become part of the awesome GraphQL community, here are a few resource and community recommendations for you:

  • Prisma Blog: The blog regularly features new and interesting content about GraphQL, from community news to technical deep dives and various tutorials.
  • GraphQL Weekly: A weekly GraphQL newsletter with news from the GraphQL ecosystem
  • GraphQL Conf: The world’s biggest gathering of GraphQL enthusiasts happening in the heart of Berlin

Congratulations on completing the tutorial! We can’t wait to see what you build.
