Join StepZen for the Advent of GraphQL challenge!

If you're curious about GraphQL, but only have ~5 minutes a day to learn it, we've got a project for you! A new challenge is unlocked every day. You'll start by making your first query, then move on to making more complex queries in our GraphQL Studio. By the end of the month, you'll have deployed a customized schema to an endpoint you created with StepZen to return a random snowflake from the Unsplash API! ❄️

Each day we'll release a new challenge to this 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. You can come late to the party, that is, you don't have to start on Dec 1st if you've got the time to catch up. It's in a tutorial format, but we appreciate creativity! If you need help, reach out to our Discord channel.

When do submissions end?

The challenge ends on December 25th, but we will accept submissions up to December 28th, and announce the winner on the morning of the 30th.

How do I enter?

Between Dec 25-28, send a link to your repository and deployed site to our Discord channel. Partial submissions will be accepted for stickers but will not be entered in the book raffle. 😊

What are the prizes?

Everyone who enters will receive StepZen stickers! Be sure to use And to one random submitter (we'll put your names in a hat, secret-santa style), we will send a book of snowflake photographs to adorn your coffee table during the winter season.
