Module 1: Introduction to Firebase
What is Firebase?
Firebase is a Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform. It provides developers with a variety of tools and services to help them develop quality apps, grow their user base, and earn profits. Firebase is built on Google's infrastructure and scales automatically, so even if your app scales from one user to millions, Firebase can handle it.
Setting up Firebase
To get started with Firebase, you need to create a Firebase project in the Firebase console, add Firebase to your app (Android, iOS, or Web), and then run your application to verify the installation. This process involves downloading a configuration file or snippet and placing it in your project directory.
Module 2: Firebase Core Features
Firebase Authentication provides backend services, easy-to-use SDKs, and ready-made UI libraries to authenticate users to your app. It supports authentication using passwords, phone numbers, popular federated identity providers like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, and more.
Cloud Firestore is a flexible, scalable NoSQL cloud database for mobile, web, and server development. It enables you to store, sync, and query data at global scale. You'll learn how to add, update, and delete data, and how to perform complex queries.
Firebase Cloud Storage
Firebase Cloud Storage is a powerful, simple, and cost-effective object storage service. You'll learn how to upload and download files to and from Cloud Storage, handle errors and monitor the progress of uploads and downloads.
Module 3: Firebase Advanced Features
Firebase Cloud Messaging
Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) is a cross-platform messaging solution that lets you reliably send messages at no cost. Using FCM, you can notify a client app that new email or other data is available to sync.
Firebase Performance Monitoring
Firebase Performance Monitoring is a service that helps you to gain insight into the performance characteristics of your iOS, Android, and web apps. You use the Performance Monitoring SDK to collect performance data from your app, then review and analyze that data in the Firebase console.
Firebase Remote Config
Firebase Remote Config is a cloud service that lets you change the appearance and behavior of your app without requiring users to download an app update. You'll learn how to define parameters in your app and update their values in the cloud, allowing you to deliver a customized version of your app for each user.
Module 4: Firebase Analytics and AB Testing
Firebase Analytics is a free app measurement solution that provides insight on app usage and user engagement. You'll learn how to log events that describe the interactions within your app and then make informed decisions about which features to invest in.
Firebase A/B Testing
Firebase A/B Testing helps you optimize your app experience by making it easy to run, analyze, and scale product and marketing experiments. You'll learn how to set up your A/B tests and how to interpret the results to make data-driven decisions.
Module 5: Real World Project
Building an App with Firebase
You'll put together everything you've learned so far to build a complete app using Firebase. This project will give you practical experience with authentication, database management, storage handling, messaging, performance monitoring, remote configuration, analytics, and A/B testing.
