Using Firebase for On-the-Wire Persistence with any Framework

A session at NFJS Twin Cities Software Symposium

  • Danny Brian

Sunday 6th March, 2016

4:00pm to 5:30pm (CST)

Firebase can replace your existing database, but that isn't its main use case. Instead, it enables a live synchronized data store for all your desktop and mobile apps. With little effort, you can implement Firebase on top of your existing applications, easing the load on your own infrastructure and giving you flexibility with offline storage use cases. What's more, you don't need to write any backend code to use it.

In this session I'll explain the basics of Firebase, and how to get started with it in both new and existing applications. We'll examine the brilliance of this solution, and how it manages to be secure and schema-free, while also not requiring backend code. I'll demonstrate Firebase's zero-effort authentication alternatives, and how they can enable you to not need your own application backend at all. Finally, we'll look at an entire application build on top of Firebase, its integration patterns, and the way Firebase enables scalability without breaking the bank.
