This month we're taking on Firebase with the help of Doug Stevenson & Juarez Filho!

"Building modern web apps powered by Firebase ⚡" - Juarez Filho

The bright modern web development world is exciting, but sometimes a bit overwhelming when you are trying to get things done fast.

That's exactly where Firebase can help you bring out the best in your web apps, providing tools to speed up your development experience and products that enable you to go beyond.

"Easy, Scalable Backends For Android Developers" - Doug Stevenson

In the past, engineering teams typically split “frontend” and “backend” responsibilities. As an Android developer, you almost certainly slotted into the “frontend” category, with no responsibility on the backend. And if you do want to work on the backend for an app, it can be taxing to learn new tools and languages, while being responsible for managing and scaling a server farm.

Today, with “serverless” backends becoming popular, server management and scaling is being fully automated, and you can use many of the same tools and languages you use for Android development. Do you want to write Kotlin everywhere? There’s a solution for you! Join this talk to survey some serverless options provided by Google, see some demos, and figure out which options are right for you.
