How aligned is GraphQL to your business needs?

Table of contents:

GraphQL can help product engineering teams build products much faster. Companies like Facebook or Airbnb use it not only to optimize data fetching in their applications but also to optimize how product engineering teams work. In other words, giant tech companies use GraphQL to deliver better software, faster. This is nothing new, new technology gives a competitive advantage to those who successfully implement it first.

If Airbnb is moving 10x faster with GraphQL, why can't your company do it too? Telling the stakeholders of a company to invest in new technology meets three main challenges:

1) It takes courage

2) Implementing it takes time and good planning

3) It’s risky since the ROI can be unpredictable

Why would you take the risk? That’s where our accelerated expert training can help.

Why this GraphQL online training is a great investment

There’s something we can do to minimize these challenges.

The first step we can take is to learn from the best. Effectively skilling up some developers on GraphQL will help your company make an informed decision about when and how much to invest in GraphQL.

The second step would be planning in advance how and when to upgrade our tech stack. Planning and exploring new tech helps you stay ahead without transferring stress on your company and teams.

About the training

With our GraphQL online training, you can take your dev career to the next level. Across 6 sessions, our coaches will show you how to master GraphQL.

Our industry-expert coaches are available to answer real-world complex questions. On top of the 3-hour sessions with a live tutor expert on GraphQL , every trainee will have a 15-minute 1-on-1 call with each expert to get the help and ask the questions they need. Those can be either related to the sessions material or to problems trainees are facing in their own real-world projects.

An industry expert giving tailored advice on practical problems can save a lot of money later.

Why training developers on GraphQL?

Hiring experts is expensive and takes time, in terms of interviews, availability, experience and costs. That’s especially problematic if you are not sure about how much to invest in GraphQL.

On the other side, keeping your employees and providing training for them will result in lower risk, lower investment, and lower commitment from the company’s side.

Thanks to the small group size in the e-classroom and the continuous assessment from the live tutors, the trainees will be able to hold mastery at the end of the training.

The curriculum introduces the most relevant and up to date GraphQL topics. This means that your employees won’t only upskill, but they’ll also learn some new exciting technology which can be helpful if you’re looking to improve your employees retention.

Same Driving Principles, In-Person & Online

With our GraphQL online training course, we aim to bring the same principles that fuel our in-person training courses. Our mission is to inspire and support professional developers to grow in their career, while leading the way for a mentorship conscious tech industry. We’re thrilled to bring this same driving principle to our online courses.

As expressed in our teaching method, you won’t be learning passively: we believe in an active learning process that will also trigger and enhance your soft skills. During the exercises you’ll be able to train your skills and problem solving, as well as improving communications and teamwork during the pair programming sessions.

You can also expect to benefit from the same React GraphQL Academy values, including our passion, empathy, and cutting-edge determination to understand the latest in GraphQL and share that knowledge with our students.
