FireChat is a project I realized in 2020 for a course I was following at ECE Paris. This course was taught by David Worms, CEO of Adaltas, and its goal was to introduce us to Web Technologies through labs on different topics of the JavaScript ecosystem:

  • Node.js
  • Express
  • SQL & NoSQL databases
  • React (JSX, Function Components, Hooks)
  • Material Design & Material UI
  • OAuth & OpenID Connect

Each module had its own lab and we then implemented what we had learned on our semester project. You can find the content of this course on this repo. I did this project in collaboration with my friend Marin Neyret, who I thank for his work.

The goal of this project was to build a basic messaging web app. You can find the full project requirements there.
