University of Toronto - St. George Campus

About this event

This introductory series aims to familiarize you with Firebase and demonstrate all of its incredible tools and services.

If you always wondered how to add sign-in and sign-up functionality to your application, Firebase Auth is the way to go. Add email-password authentication as well as popular provider support (Google, Facebook, GitHub etc.) all in less than an hour.

In this event, we'll be creating login and sign-up functionality for our website using the Firebase Auth SDK. We’ll also explore Firebase UI to generate a quick sign-up flow with email & password and other different providers.

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:

and the open-sourced repository can be found here:
