Why is the Firebase class only for PRO? Really lame Tree House.

Agreed! Firebase was one of the reasons why I subscribed. Canceling my subscription ASAP. Found what I wanted to know for free @ https://firebase.google.com/docs/samples/ and http://www.androidhive.info/?s=firebase

Hi all, we reviewed this workshop and decided to make it available to Basic students. Our Pro content is meant to target a more advanced audience whose need faster-paced content that touches on needs for jobs in the industry. Our original plans for Firebase material targeted that audience, but this is actually an excellent piece of content for students relatively new to Android programming because it's such a great way to add in so many backend services. Hope you all enjoy it! The Firebase docs linked above are great places to extend your learning after this initial project.

Please let us know here or via an email to our support team what else you would like to see us cover in Firebase or Android in general.

Great . Good job
