Building a serverless backend using Firebase

Event Logo

Wednesday, July 26, 2023 - 3:30 PM UTC, for 1 hour.

Regular, 60 minute presentation

Room: H


In this session, we will see how we can make use of Firebase Cloud Functions to build a serverless backend for our web or mobile applications, using JavaScript or TypeScript. With practical examples, we will review the different types of Cloud Functions, their usefulness, and how to test them. We will also review some use case examples. Cloud Functions for Firebase is a serverless framework that lets you automatically run backend code in response to events triggered by Firebase features (Auth, Firestore, etc.) and HTTPS requests.


At least some knowledge of software development, ideally JS or TS.
