I'm wondering...

How long will I have access to the course?

SolidSail Membership gives you access to all of our courses as long as you are a member.
You can also purchase the individual course, in which case you'll be given lifetime access to it, regardless of future updates to the class.

What stack are we using?

React: JavaScript library for building user interfaces
Firebase: Serverless framework that lets you automatically run backend code
Ionic: UI toolkit for building mobile and desktop apps using web technologies
Capacitor: Native SDKs on iOS, Android, Electron, and the Web with one code base

Why did you choose this stack?

We optimize for building minimum viable products (MVPs), which means we build in a way that aims for easy implementation, low maintenance, and maximum flexibility. Ionic lets us use one codebase to build across every platform and benefit from a rich set of UI components. Firebase gives us a serverless framework to help us out with an authentication, database, and storage.

What other courses do you offer?

We have upcoming courses to build different startups like Product Hunt, Reddit, Slack, Airbnb, and Uber. You can check out our storefront to see our other classes. These courses are coming soon and you can sign up to get notified about their upcoming release.

What if I have other questions?

Feel free to use the chat bubble on the page to message us directly. Or email us at admin@solidsail.com. We'll get back to you ASAP!
