Learning About Nodejs Graphql Microservices

I’m currently working on a few micro-services with Docker. The architecture looks promising to me, and I like to play with Docker containers. Lately I’ve been watching a few videos about Node.js/GraphQL Microservices by Better Coding Academy. The tutorial series assumes a lot of knowledge (JavaScript, Express, GraphQL, Docker). I would have liked more detailed explanations. But the videos are still useful for showing the architecture of an Express/GraphQL setup with micro-services.

Writing Ugly React.js and GraphQL

At the moment, I’m going through Reed Barger’s course Serverless React with AWS Amplify - The Complete Guide. I’m learning a lot about serverless JavaScript/React development with AWS. But wow, does it get ugly. Code duplication, wrangling with the AWS back end, fetching data several times, etc. I don’t have a lot of confidence in AWS Amplify. It makes it relatively easy to create a back-end API with GraphQL. But the documentation is lacking, the AWS web console confusing, and the pricing (after the free trial months) steep.

How to enable CORS for apollo-server

What Is Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)? See the MDN Docs: Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) is a mechanism that uses additional HTTP headers to tell a browser to let a web application running at one origin (domain) have permission to access selected resources from a server at a different origin. A web application makes a cross-origin HTTP request when it requests a resource that has a different origin (domain, protocol, and port) than its own origin.

Great Meetup at Softwerkskammer Ruhr

I was at a wonderful tech meetup on Wednesday. This was one of my first meetups and it was so much fun! The organizer was super nice and approachable. I enjoyed the lecture about REST to GraphQL although I would have liked to gain more insight into the topic. But the talk offered a nice first glance at GraphQL and what’s nice about it. For me, it was wonderful to be able to talk about my passion for functional web development, different frameworks, and technologies with people who work in the industry.
