Let's code a Netlifx Clone with GraphQL Pagination (Reviewed by a NETFLIX ENGINEER!)

In this video, I build a Netflix Clone using React, Apollo GraphQL, DataStax Astra + Netlify Serverless Functions! For more free credits on top of your already free ones, use code ANIA200 on

This video is great for those wanting to see how I build an app that fetches data from our Cassandra database using the GraphQL API, as well as learn how to use pagination and slicing. Here are just a few things we will be covering:

00:00 Introduction

57:36 Getting the Genres using GraphQL
01:04:48 Getting the Movies by Genre in our browsers
01:20:45 Pagination in GraphQL

02:13:36 Font Awesome Icons
02:16:20 Final basic styling

Movie Data:

As always, please take this project and make it your own. I have done some basic styling for you to get going. This is not a tutorial on styling, it is more to practise your database management skills, so please go wild on the styling yourselves :D! I would love to see what you have made!!

Nice work! Just one little thing, it looks like you have put up the links in wrong order (movie data link's in place of finished project link) :-)
