Build an Apollo Graphql user authentication for your React app - part 2

August 29, 2019

In my last post we built a Graphql API that handles user authentication and authorization. In particular we added a loginUser query that returns a JWT token. This token can be used to access restricted resources. In this post I will show what the implementation looks like on Reacts side. Walking through this guide requires basic React knowledge. We will use React Router for routing, React Hooks for executing Graphql queries and Matieral-UI for the component framework.

Thoughts on deception

July 25, 2019

I am currently reading The redemption of Time by Baoshu. It is a fan-fiction of the three-body problem trilogy. A science fiction series that was appraised by Obama himself.

Environment matters

July 8, 2019

This post gets a bit abstract. I felt uneasy publishing it. Usually, I write about solid and measurable matters. But this time I wanna talk about an unusual topic. A less graspable. Its about how we perceive ourself and our environment. How we put ourselves into perspective. I wanna talk about the very distinction between individual and environment and why it matters.
