Benjie Gillam

Benjie has been writing applications, servers and APIs professionally for over a decade. As part of maintaining PostGraphile, a popular OSS project that generates an extremely high-performance and highly configurable GraphQL API from your existing PostgreSQL database schema, Benjie built the Graphile suite of tools for building scalable GraphQL schemas through plugins. He also helps to maintain the official GraphiQL GraphQL IDE and is a contributor to the GraphQL Specification Working Group. He sees GraphQL as one of the biggest advancements in web API technology during his career.

Jem Gillam

Jem has a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), which equipped her with the tools and techniques to support people in their learning journeys. After a career change to programming where she built web and iOS apps she joined the GraphQL-Training team and brings a focus on learning methodologies and curricula planning. She also operates the human side of the Graphile OSS projects, building the community around the software and ensuring that supporters’ concerns are rapidly addressed.

On-site, Off-site or Remote

Every organization’s need is different which is why we love to work with teams on site, customizing the syllabus to meet your needs. With a decade of experience in building products and consulting with small startups through to household name media companies, we understand how to help your developers achieve the very best…

Need a remote or external location? We can do that too. We conduct bespoke online webinars and can host up to 20 developers at central locations in all major European cities.

Contact us for more details.

Teaching Style

We find that most people learn best by doing, so our 1-day and 2-day courses have multiple cycles of listening to a short presentation and then performing a programming exercise using the techniques discussed. This gives the student opportunity to solidify their understanding, experiment and even to make mistakes and learn how to fix them.

We operate a buddy system where each student is paired with another so they can help each other to solve any problems, and our trainers will be on-hand to help clarify any uncertainties and guide how to fix issues.
