I have some exciting news to share with you. That after some initial delays, the AppSync Masterclass is now open for Early Access with 40% launch discount.

First of all, thank you so much for your patience, it’s taken us a bit longer than we expected but we’re here, at last.

You can purchase the course from and gain early access. Overall, the course is ~10% complete, with most of the introductory lessons already available. More lessons will be released on a weekly basis from here on and hopefully complete by the end of 2020.

Buying a course that is only 10% complete is a risk, I get it. Which is why we have launched it with a hefty 40% discount on the final price.

The course comes in 3 packages, depending on how far you want to go. You will implement most of the basic features of Twitter in the Basic Package.

The Plus Package introduces more advanced features such as two-way paginations and caching, and how to use GraphQL Subscriptions to implement real-time notifications.

The Premium Package goes a step further and shows you how to track client-side analytics events (e.g. tweet impressions and profile clicks) and take you through the things you need to think about if you want to go to production with AppSync – observability, custom domain names and how to make the frontend a PWA and support local caching, and so on.

The curriculum is likely to change slightly during the Early Access phase, with potentially more lessons being added based on your feedback.

If there are any topics that you’d like me to cover in addition to what’s in the curriculum then please let me know.

In the meantime, if you wanna get a sense of what you will be building then check out the teaser videos I published earlier.



Hope to see you in the course, until then, take care and stay safe :-)
