Firebase Functions lets you automatically run backend code in response to events triggered by Firebase features and HTTPS requests. In this course, Firebase Functions: Fundamentals, you will gain the skills needed to be able to use Cloud Functions for Firebase. First, you will learn the basics of cloud functions. Next, you will explore how to create callable functions and how to call functions directly. Finally, you will also discover how to trigger Firebase functions on different Firebase services like Cloud Firestore, Real-time Database, Authentication, etc. By the end of this course, you will have a foundational understanding of Firebase functions and how to take advantage of it to create sophisticated apps.
Course Overview Hi everyone, and welcome to my course, Firebase Functions: Fundamentals. My name is Ervis Trupja, and I'm a self-employed web developer and trainer. In this course, we are going to talk about cloud functions for Firebase. It's a great service which allows us to run back-end code in response to events triggered by Firebase features and HTTP requests. Some of the major topics that we will cover include understanding cloud functions, calling, triggering, and writing Firebase functions, testing Firebase functions, and upgrading Firebase functions. By the end of this course, you'll know enough to take advantage of the amazing Firebase functions as a serverless compute solution for creating event-driven applications. Having previous experience with other Firebase services is recommended, but it is not required. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn Firebase functions with the Firebase Functions: Fundamentals course here, at Pluralsight.
