Intermediate Firebase Part 3 - Cloud Functions for Firebase

University of Alberta
Sat, Feb 20, 2021, 10:00 AM (MST)

About this event

This intermediate series aims to show the more in-depth features of Firebase, so you can build your apps with even more confidence.

In this event we’ll cover Firebase Functions - standalone bits of code that allow you to separate some pieces of business logic from your front-end applications. We’ll go over different types of triggers that Firebase Functions can be called with and showcase situations where they could be useful in your projects.

Along with the event, we will be providing the opportunity to engage with us by contributing to the mock e-commerce website which we'll be using to demonstrate the concepts we will be covering.

The most up to date version of the website can be found here, but we will be working on different versions of the site for each topic:
