Whether you're an individual developer looking to get started with a hackathon project, or a huge team looking to add more features to your production app, Firebase has features that can greatly improve your product and make development easier. Firebase is a realtime database backend-as-a-service, meaning that you don't have to write any code to set up your backend. In this workshop, we will go over some of the key features of Firebase, talk about where Firebase could help your development team, and some of the key consideration points when you are trying to turn your ideas into a reality. We will discuss what Firebase is, how Firebase can add value to your applications, and a little bit about how it works. However, if you're already familiar with Firebase but are looking for a little added guidance on how to use it, please check out our other Firebase workshops.
