What you’ll learn

  • Increase your value as a React developer
  • Learn Gatsby
  • Set up Gatsby to generate pages from data stored in Firebase
  • Implement a realtime chat / comments section using firestore
  • Provide registration and login functionality using the firebase authentication service
  • Use firebase cloud functions for server-side authentication
  • Use firebase cloud functions with cloud storage for file uploads
  • Learn how to query firestore data using GraphQL from our Gatsby JS app

Do you want to increase your value as a front-end / React JS / Gatsby developer?

Then this Gatsby JS & Firestore with React Hooks course is for you!

Level-up your React skillset by learning the Gatsby.js framework with Firebase – this is an awesome HYBRID stack, where we can generate static pages in Gatsby JS from data stored in firestore, but also allow dynamic and realtime functionality such as login / registration, and realtime chat & comments

We’ll be creating the “Gatsby book club” – and we’ll look at how we can query firestore data in Gatsby with GraphQL using the GraphiQL browser tool.

We’ll be setting up Gatsby to build static sites based on data stored in firestore and firebase cloud storage ☁️ based on GraphQL queries. We’ll use the realtime capabilities of firestore to implement a realtime chat / comments section for each book, and we’ll be using the firebase authentication service to provide real-time registration and login functionality to our Gatsby app.

No app is complete without an admin section, so we’ll be implementing an admin section in our Gatsby app that allows admins to create new authors and new books, as well as implementing a file upload feature using firebase cloud functions with firebase cloud storage.

Once we’ve finished our Gatsby app, we’ll take a look at how to deploy a live version of our Gatsby site using Netlify, and implement an auto-rebuild of our Gatsby site any time we add new books.

Speed past the competition with Gatsby!

Gatsby.js builds the fastest possible website. Instead of waiting to generate pages when requested, Gatsby pre-builds pages and lifts them into a global cloud of servers (we’ll be using Netlify for this) – ready to be delivered instantly to your users wherever they are.

Some advantages of Gatsby include:

  • No waiting for API responses

  • No waiting to render components based on requested data

  • No loading spinners!

  • No waiting for a server to compile a page to serve to the browser – these pages are already pre-compiled by Gatsby and ready to serve instantly to your users!

We certainly cover a LOT in this Gatsby course!

What other students are saying about the Gatsby & Firebase course:

5/5 stars: “Great job for creating this Gatsby.js course. Highly recommended for intermediate React.js developers.” – Siegfred Balona

5/5 stars: “This is a very good course for developers who are already familiar with React. It took me 4 days to complete the course. It covers many practical parts of Gatsby that can immediately be applied to real-world projects. I will definitely take more courses from Tom.” – Ye Joo Park

5/5 stars: “The lecturer speaks in a clear and concise manner, the build up of the course is also good. I recommend that you learn about the essentials about Gatsby on beforehand as there are a lot of semi-advanced Gatsby techniques at play here (which is great learning about).” – Ole Ulrik Skipperud

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

  4. Vincent Beaudet

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
