Datastax AppDev Summer Learning Series

Recently I have completed application development workshops organized by Datastax.

Here's what I learned:

  • how to build a TodoApp with Javascript and React
  • how to build a TikTok clone with JAM stack
  • how to build a Netflix clone with GraphQL

Specifically, using React's create-react-app, I learned how to customize and structure my codes based on the framework. Building on that, I learned how to interact with Cassandra database backend via APIs using Swigger and GraphQL. Finally, I learned how to build the web application and deploy the static files to Netlify along with the serverless functions to retrieve data from the database.

Instead of using Netlify, I planned to deploy the JAM stack application to Cloudflare Pages and using Cloudflare Workers to handle the serverless functions.
I will write another blog post on that after this project completes!


Here are the links to my TikTok and Netlify clone applications!
