Integrating Google Firebase with a React Application


Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Facebook’s React.js has quickly become the most popular front-end library in the world of web development, and a very marketable skill for any modern front-end or full-stack web developer. In 2014 Google acquired Firebase, the legendary “Backend As a Service”. Google Firebase now offers an array of tools for mobile and web developers to quickly scale their products without having to worry about the tedious backend processes, while focusing on creating enhanced user experiences. As the popularity of React.js has grown, many developers have succeeded at pairing their React Apps with a Google Firebase backend.

Join General Assembly’s instructors for an interactive workshop as we walk you through integrating Google Firebase into a React App and explore the realtime database (one of it’s most popular features!).
