As mentioned in the first session, we are taking on participants through the RSVP form (

RSVP will be limited on a first-come-first-served basis.

Our Firebase repo is also set up ( If anyone has not joined us, please let Solomon know. We will add you to the contributor list.

It is expected for everyone to have their own project ideas for this series. If you are determined and committed to be a part of the Firebase journey until the end, we are excited to have you!

Before next session, please make sure to have Firebase set up and make sure to choose Firestore for the database. Try and connect Firebase to the framework of your choice. We are primarily focusing on web related framework with Angular, React and Vue this time. However, if you have a framework you would like to use or if you are trying out through iOS or Android, please still feel free to be a part of us and share your experiences!

For more details on setup, Google’s Firebase guide will be a good place to get started (

Location will be at Intersect.

In this series, we will take a journey into Firebase and what its capabilities are.

Throughout the series, we will be looking at the following topics:
- Firebase highlights and intro
- Setup/Read/Write
- Frameworks/Auth
- Fun with Frameworks

If you have always been interested in learning about Firebase or have an astonishing app idea that requires NoSQL database, this series will be a great fit for you!

- 6:00pm - Doors Open
