I just completed a Qwiklabs demo on Firebase.
As a developer, Firebase allows you to create Android, IOS and Web applications easily and quickly, just like WordPress. 
In this demo, I configured and deployed a chat client application using Firebase. I implemented the following tasks;
- Sync data using the Cloud Firestore and Cloud Storage for Firebase.
- Authenticate users using Firebase Auth.
- Deploy the web app on Firebase Hosting.
- Send notifications with Firebase Cloud Messaging.

You can try it out on qwiklabs: https://www.qwiklabs.com/focuses/660?parent=catalog

Amazing, @Vick ! Firebase is impressive, I once followed a seminar here in my town and I was surprised on how easy it is to build apps with it. And yes, we also did the chat client app :D

Thanks for posting this!
How easy is it to work with Firebase? What are the “requirements” for someone to start working with it? Do you have to have prior programming knowledge?

And also, please remind me, is it an online platform? You don’t really have to install something locally, right?

And last but not least, is it expensive?

 

Thanks! :)

HI @Dimitris Petrakis . Yes, firebase is very easy to use and it is beginner friendly. However, a basic knowledge of javascript will be very helpful. 

To get started, simply log on the Firebase console and start building 😉. 

And lastly, about cost, firebase being a platform-as-a-service offering from Google is inexpensive as you only get to pay for what you use
