About this event

This event is over!

You can find the finished code for the sample project here:

The Firebase documentation site is a great place to look to learn more about how this was built:


Come join us as we go over some Firebase basics that'll help you as you get started building projects!

We'll be going over Firebase's Realtime Database, Firestore, and Authentication features. These three features make it easy to add data syncing and Sign Ins to your app and are an easy way to add important functionality to your project. We'll be adding these features to an incomplete sample project so you can see how these features can be implemented and used.

Firebase is a lot more than just a database, so we encourage you to explore what it has to offer on your own. You'll find there's a lot of useful things that'll help you as you build your project.

Join us on in person at ARC 242 on Wednesday, February 7th from 5pm to 6:30pm as we learn some important Firebase basics!
