Web app and phone notifications

As a learning exercise, i want to try setting up a phone app that would send and receives data or notifications to/from a cloud hosted server with some database that stores the events, preferably securely. Do you have any advice/pointers to some tutorial/open source to get me started?

BroFar thanks, yes as I started looking around i found about firebase, but as i know very little i am asking for any alternative ideas and opinions. (At this point i would not know what solutions are possible, let alone their pros and cons) Then i will compare and hopefully build up some knowledge.
