Announcing Cloud Onboarding Guide Rails

Lewis King|Dec 11th, 2019|



We’re pleased to announce two new tutorials in the Fauna Console: Basic CRUD and GraphQL.

As new users continue to join the Fauna community at a growing rate, we know that the use cases for the database continue to diversify. With that growth comes new questions for how to get acclimated to Fauna’s unique and powerful query language. Also, some users want to dive straight into trying out GraphQL queries.

Our goal is to ensure that any user can create their first database and then add, update, delete, and modify new data within that database during their first 5 minutes as a Fauna user.

Over time, we plan to add more advanced use cases to our tutorial suite so that users who have been with Fauna since the beginning can continue to level up their skill set.

Getting started with tutorials

Console tutorials can be found by clicking the (?) button in the top right of the Console:

New users are automatically prompted to try out one of the two available tutorials:

These two tutorials are designed to cover the basic functionality within Fauna. The Basic CRUD tutorial also provides a primer for FQL syntax. For example, a query that users will learn and use:

Running this query in the Console provides the expected result:

By design, these tutorial steps are relatively self-explanatory :)


With our latest Console release, users now have access to getting-started tutorials. Visit our documentation to learn more.

What other tutorials would you like to see implemented in the Fauna Console? Please reach out to me on Twitter and on our Community Slack and describe any other features that would make Fauna an obvious choice for your next project.

If you enjoyed our blog, and want to work on systems and challenges related to globally distributed systems, serverless databases, GraphQL, and Jamstack, Fauna is hiring!
