Building modern API with NestJS and Prisma ORM

The "Building Modern APIs with NestJS and Prisma ORM" workshop is tailored for developers aiming to master the creation of robust and efficient backend APIs using cutting-edge technologies. NestJS provides a powerful and scalable framework for building server-side applications in TypeScript, while Prisma ORM offers an intuitive and type-safe way to interact with databases. In this workshop, participants will embark on a hands-on journey to explore the capabilities of NestJS and Prisma ORM, learning how to design, develop, and deploy modern APIs that adhere to best practices in backend development. From setting up a project to handling data efficiently and implementing API security, attendees will gain the skills and knowledge needed to build high-performance APIs with ease.
