GraphQL is one of the fastest growing technologies in the front-end and React worlds. And who better to teach us about it than Eve Porcello (@eveporcello), author of Learning GraphQL, as well as this pretty awesome GraphQL workshop.
Eve is a previous guest of React Wednesdays. The first time around she taught us the basics of GraphQL, so this time around she got into some more advanced GraphQL content—including new GraphQL features like defer and stream.
React Wednesdays is a weekly chat show with the best and brightest from the React world, hosted by KendoReact Developer Advocate TJ VanToll. New episodes go live every Wednesday at 1:00 pm ET. You can add React Wednesdays to your calendar or follow CodeItLive on Twitch to get notified.Follow CodeitLive on Twitch

It has some features that are similar to React (component model, hooks), but also some that are quite different—for example, Solid doesn’t use a virtual DOM.
Ryan demoed Solid for us, and discussed how and why React developers might want to check out Solid.
This was a fun one as Solid is growing in popularity, and we're curious to see it in action.

On this episode of React Wednesdays we tried out GitHub Copilot, a fascinating new tool that uses AI to give you suggestions on the code you need to write.
And to help us try it out we invited back Paige Niedringhaus (@pniedri), a staff software engineer at Blues Wireless that’s going to help us discover all the crazy things Copilot can do.

Libraries like React abstract away DOM APIs so that you rarely ever have to deal with them. And while that’s mostly a good thing, knowing how the DOM APIs work can have some real benefits—for example when you need to write code that works on any app regardless of framework.
On this episode of React Wednesdays, TJ VanToll gave a hands-on demo of the most popular DOM APIs and showed how to select DOM nodes, move DOM nodes, attach event listeners, and more.
