GDG Toronto Members!
Join us this coming Saturday for the first iteration of our Firebase Code Lab!
This will be a 4-hour guided workshop taking participants through getting a Firebase-based project up and running.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar, Firebase is a product designed to take care of the backend data-storage and authorization for you so you can focus on building your app.
Need user authentication? Got it.
Need data storage? Got it.
Need a backend that will service multiple apps or products? Got it.
You can find details on the Firebase website: https://firebase.google.com
Firebase can be used as a backend system across most popular modern platforms - whether you are building Web apps, Android apps, iOS apps, Firebase may be a viable option for you to look into.
