In this Firestore series, I’ll show you how to retrieve and write data to a Firestore database. We’ll also use Firebase authentication with a custom-built login UI. Follow along and learn how to use these powerful tools!

In this lesson, I’m going over the brainstorming process and the app development timeline to reach v1.

  3. I don't think push notifications are necessary for v1, but it would be super cool to see a tutorial for receiving APN's when another user "likes" your post ?

  4. Could you go over why you picked firebase and the other option you might go with based on the situation. Also, would this series be valid for someone working with SwiftUI instead? Would've been great if you went Swiftui because there's a lack of information and we could all learn together
