1.1 Introduction

Welcome to Building a Wiki With React and Firebase. In this course, we’ll be using React and Firebase to build a real-time, multi-user, collaborative web application. We’re also going to use ECMAScript 6 (i.e.ECMAScript 2015) for our front-end application, to get a taste of some of its new features.

1.1 Introduction

Welcome to building a wiki with React and Firebase. I'm Andrew Burgess and I'll be your instructor for this course. React is a really, really popular framework right now. And so we're going to be building a web application with React in this course. But that's not all we're going to be using. We're also going to use Firebase which is a back-end for data storage. Firebase can do a lot of powerful things, but we're just going to use some of its basic features, which include using it basically as a JSON database that we can store all of our data in. In this project, we're going to be building a wiki, but it's more than just a wiki. It's going to be a live updating wiki so that multiple users can be editing the same page at once and see each other's changes almost immediately. This will be really, really simple with React on the front-end. And it allows us to take advantage of the live data that Firebase gives us. We're also going to be using ECMA Script 6 or ECMA Script 2015. This is the latest version of JavaScript. And all of its features will be standard in browsers and other platforms, n the near future. So it's a good idea to get started learning those features. And so that's what we're going to do in this course. All right. So if you're ready to get started building this web application. Let's go.
