Look inside
In the liveVideo course Building Web Applications with Firebase you’ll code along with expert instructor Gareth Brown as you use Firebase to add hosting, cloud storage, database services, and user authentication to a complete music-and-chat web app. The super-reliable Firebase backend-as-a-service handles your app’s data storage and retrieval infrastructure so you can focus on building an amazing user experience.

about the subject

For many web apps, the backend functionality—storing, processing, and retrieving data—is predictable. Firebase is a fully managed backend service that gives you best-in-class infrastructure for your web apps, handling everything from user authentication and server scaling, right through to crash analytics and a reliable testing environment. Just set it and forget it. Backed by Google and used by some of the top apps available, you can trust Firebase to work flawlessly every time.

about the video

Building Web Applications with Firebase cures the headache of creating—and re-creating—custom backend infrastructure. Code along as expert instructor Gareth Brown creates an entire music-and-chat web app on screen, showing you step-by-step how Firebase can carry the load of your hosting, cloud storage, database services, and user authentication. Each module adds new backend functionality to your app, which you can easily implement with the frontend skills you already know. There are no assumptions made about the rest of your stack; you’ll learn transferable Firebase skills that work seamlessly with your favorite frameworks. When you’re done, you’ll have a fully working app for your portfolio that can show off your new Firebase skills!
