Getting Started with Firebase
7-minute workshop with Michael Lustig
About this Workshop
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.
Hello, I am Michael Lustig, and I love Android. My fascination with the Operating System stems from back in the days of Gingerbread. My first Android device was the Original Droid's partner in crime, the Droid Eris. My earliest memory of that phone was finding SetCPU for Root Users. At the time, I had no idea what that meant, but I bought it anyway, determined to tinker with my device. Now I am a passionate Android developer, teacher, and mentor, with experience managing Android applications on the Play Store that have accumulated over 2,000,000 downloads.
