Up and Running with Gatsby: Working with Data

Let's look at how data works in Gatsby from a high level.

PRO

In this chapter, you'll learn the basics of data in Gatsby. You'll add some siteMetadata to gatsby-config.js and use GraphiQL to explore Gatsby's data structure and build queries. You'll then learn about static queries and page queries and try them out yourself. Once we've got the basics of data down, we'll move on to Markdown and MDX in the next tutorial.

You can find the finished sample code for this chapter in sample-code/gatsby-data. The assignments are in the readme in the assignments folder.
