About the Talk

We have built a custom API with Strapi in the past. Now that we have some data, a dashboard, and a REST API, let’s use JavaScript and React to consume that API.

We will build a simple app and talk about grabbing data from our new API.

Key Takeaways

  • Building a Custom API with Strapi lets us focus on our frontend code
  • Using React to grab data from an API

This Talk is Designed For

Developers that have their own APIs and want to consume their APIs with React and JavaScript.

Prerequisites

Some knowledge of JavaScript and how APIs work is a plus.

Interesting, can I store data in a Realm database while using Strapi?
