Announcing the Advent of GraphQL Challenge

We've got exciting news! StepZen is running an 'Advent of GraphQL' challenge in December! If you have around 5 minutes a day, you can complete this challenge and boost your GraphQL knowledge to boot. Learn how to write your own queries and connect to a REST API. We've got some cool prizes this year...


Where to find the challenge

Each day we'll release a new challenge to this Notion calendar. Follow along to take part. If you'd like to tweet about your progress, be sure to let us know by tagging @stepzen_dev!

What are the rules?

Complete each of the 25 steps. If you aren't able to start on Dec 1st then you are welcome to come late to the party, there's plenty of time to catch up. It's in a tutorial format, but we appreciate creativity! If you need help, reach out to our Discord channel.
