In the video 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 subjectFor 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.
