Table of contents


This is a course for advanced android developers that showcases Googles Firebase. You as the student will grasp Firebase by building one complicated shopping list app from start to finish with the instructor.  
Firebase will be used to register and authenticate users into our application, create and display a real time database, and allow a sharing feature between users. In addition to learning about Firebase, advanced android topics are shown as well. These topics include checking for user errors client side, using an event bus, and finally implementing the Facebook login API. 
The course is structured as a code along however towards the end you will be presented with challenges. These challenges will allow you to put your Firebase knowledge to the test and more importantly push you as a developer. At the end of the course, you will have your final challenge and unlike the other challenges, there will be no solution. However, the instructor will be there to help and guide you as needed.
It is critical to have a back end for any android application. Even if user authentication if not needed, the apps data should be stored somewhere other then the users phone. By taking this course, you will be able to use one of the most powerful back ends out there. With over 10 hours of content, you will obtain a clear understanding of Firebase.
