About this event

** This will only be a remote talk, there will be no physical meetup. More details below. **

So you want to be a “full stack” developer?
In the past, engineering teams typically split front end and back end responsibilities. As an Android developer, you’re almost certainly slotted into the front end category with no responsibility on the back end. And, if you do want to work on the back end for an app, it can be taxing to learn new tools and languages, while being responsible for managing and scaling a server farm. But times have changed, and it’s much easier to be a “full stack” developer!

Today, serverless backends are popular, which means server management and scaling has become fully automated. Instead of worrying about infrastructure, you can spend time learning new tools and languages. And if that doesn’t appeal to you, you can still use many of the same tools and languages you use for Android development. Do you want to write Kotlin everywhere? There is a solution for you! Join this talk to survey some serverless options provided by Google, and figure out which options are right for you.

Doug Stevenson is Director of Developer Relations at Mesmer.
