Develop real-time Firebase backends for your Android apps. Increase user engagement and build apps faster
About This Video
Building a successful app needs a backend platform to store your users' data, which is taxing and inefficient if you try to create your own. There are so many devices that would take you forever if you tried to test your app on them. You will waste time fixing bugs affecting your app and it's almost impossible to tailor your app to each user's needs.
This course starts by explaining the features and benefits of using Firebase as a backend. Firebase is a seamless way to connect your app to the cloud. This way, your app can access its various tools and services—for example, its databases (to create an easy backend) and its crash reporting services, to save you plenty of time debugging. This course will help you build a to-do list application that rewards users with value points for completing tasks, allowing them to reap rewards such as special features as they get more tasks done. You'll also be able to access a PC version of the app to add and remove items, which will update on all platforms in real-time. You'll even be able to send alerts from the PC to the Android version of the app, even if the app hasn't yet been opened on Android, to make sure important tasks never go unchecked.
By the end of the course, you will be able to implement Firebase and its different tools and services in any app. You will be trained to think from the perspective of your users, build the right backends to support their needs, and run effective tests to make sure the features you build are successful.
