Learn cutting-edge React along with the most popular serverless framework by building a Hacker News Clone

Want to build stunning, blazing-fast web apps with the best in React development? This is the course for you.

In this course, you'll get the entire plan on building full-stack, serverless applications that harness the latest and greatest features in the React ecosystem on top of the Firebase platform.


In this course, we’ll see how to bring React Hooks and Firebase as well as Firestore together to build a complete Hacker News Clone from zero to deployment. It looks and works exactly like the original Hacker News site, but with some added features.

We’ll cover tons of concepts throughout the process of making it—how to authenticate users with Firebase in-depth, adding comments, upvoting stories, and creating, modified and persisting shared link data all in realtime with our Firestore database, writing multiple reusable Hooks for essential tasks in our app, building and deploy serverless Firebase functions for added functionality, and much more...

  • Sorting, Ordering and Limiting Documents with Firestore Queries

  • Seamless App Deployment with Firebase Hosting

  • Using Date Fns to Format Time


I’ve wanted to work with Hooks and Firebase for quite a while now, and if you have as well, you’ll know here’s very little content on how to make real-world apps using Hooks (aside from my two other courses, of course :P), and even less on how to integrate them with Firebase.

This course was created to fill that gap. You’ll get the entire plan for combining them to supercharge your own app development by writing less code to do what you want within your apps.

I really enjoyed making this course and I think you’ll enjoy taking it just as much.​

Looking forward to seeing you within the course!
