12. 🔥 Firebase

Chris' Spring 2021 Guest Lecture

Firebase is a platform developed by Google to “build, improve, and grow your app”, and the tools it gives you cover a large portion of the services that developers would normally have to build themselves, but don’t really want to build, because they’d rather be focusing on the app experience itself. This includes things like analytics, authentication, databases, configuration, file storage, push messaging, and the list goes on (it's pretty extensive). The services are hosted in the cloud, and scale with little to no effort on the part of the developer.
