If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Google Firebase, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Queries to the database were very simple. However, modeling is a challenge and I recommend running proof of concepts when you want to store something new in the database. Overall, I have to say that this database is great.
I'm using the latest online version of the solution, which is public cloud-based. I can develop the solution offline if I like. I go offline to develop the solution and then I'll go online again to test because testing online wastes my time. I do the test of my software offline, but when I want to use the cloud to test I'll jump online. I'd rate the solution ten out of ten.
I would rate it a seven and a half out of ten. Not a ten because I haven't explored every facet to it. I am very happy with what I have seen so far.
I would rate Firebase as eight out of ten.
It's a good product for prototyping, with a nice interface and is easy to work with, but difficult to predict the cost. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
