About this event

Come learn about Firebase and all it has to offer with our live demos. 

Come learn about Android Things and how easy it is to develop connected embedded devices using the same Android development tools, and Google APIs that are used on mobile.

Firebase is a unified app platform for Android, iOS and web development. Firebase provides the tools to quickly develop high-quality apps, grow your user base, and earn more money. Firebase is made up of complementary features that you can mix-and-match to fit your needs. There are 15 features within Firebase that work across iOS, Android and web. These features work seamlessly together for an intuitive and powerful developer experience.

Android Things extends the core Android framework with additional APIs provided by the Things Support Library. These APIs allow apps to integrate with new types of hardware not found on mobile devices.

The Android Things platform is also streamlined for single application use. System apps are not present, and your app is launched automatically on startup to immerse your users in the app experience.
