Firebase alone although a useful and powerful back end is not enough to build a truly great android app. It is best to create a node.js server to play middle man between your android client and Firebase. By having a node.js server, you improve security, app performance, and unlock features such as user to user push notifications!
The main purpose of this course is to show you how to build and utilize a node.js server with Firebase to create a powerful android application. In order to accomplish this goal, we will build a fully functional chatting app from scratch. This app will contain features such as real time chatting, user profiles, and notifications to name a few. You will also pick up some UI tricks like creating a bottom navigation bar, using circular image views, and wiring up a search bar.
This course is one of a kind as there is no other Android course that tackles implementing a node.js server into development. By taking this course not only will you achieve a whole new level in your development skills but you'll be able to build any app you can think of!
