In this course, you’ll learn how to use Firebase from the experts at Google. Firebase is an app development platform that provides developers with a variety of tools and a scalable infrastructure so that you can quickly build high quality apps. In this course, you’ll build FriendlyChat, a realtime text and picture chat application. To start, you’ll see how easy it is to read and write data to Firebase. After that, you’ll learn how to let users login with their email or Google account. You’ll then learn how to use Firebase’s Security and Rules language to secure and add permissions to your data. In the second lesson, you’ll learn about Firebase Storage, which lets users upload content from their devices. Then you’ll have a brief overview of Firebase Analytics so you can analyze app usage data to make decision about your app. Following that, you’ll explore Firebase Notifications, which allow you to send notifications to customized segments of users. Finally, you’ll dive into Firebase Remote Config, which gives you the ability to tune and customize your app without having to publish a new version. By the end of this course you will have an Android application that can store and share data between different users in realtime as well as authenticate and authorize those users.
