Caxy hosted a React Meetup event

July 12, 2023

This repository is a demo application that was built for a code walkthrough / working session for a React Chicago meetup event. It is a Trello clone, utilizing the react-trello package as a way to bootstrap the UI with static data, that we then wired up to the backend.

Tech Stack:

  • NestJS (node framework)
  • React
  • GraphQL (with Apollo Client and NestJS' Apollo Server module)
  • mySQL database
  • redis (for PubSub of real-time updates)
  • websockets (using GraphQL subscriptions with NestJS)
  • react-trello (trello-like component)

Watch the recording of the presentation for an explanation of how things are set up, and a walkthrough of wiring up Apollo Client on the frontend:
