About this event

Hello GDG Fremont Flutter and Firebase enthusiasts,

Let’s talk about Rapid Prototyping using Flutter and Firebase with our speaker Paul Ruiz @Google .
Paul is a Developer Programs Engineer on Firebase with a background in Android and IoT development. Outside of work he makes movie props as a hobby, and is a member of a Star Wars costuming charity where he volunteers at events as various movie characters including an Imperial Snowtrooper, X-Wing Pilot, or Tusken Raider. Before getting into tech Paul was a zookeeper, so feel free to ask any giraffe-related questions.

Do you ever need to make an app quickly, such as for a hackathon or prototype, but not know where to start? In this talk you will learn about Flutter, Google's cross-OS development platform, as well as Firebase, Google's Backend as a Service (BaaS) platform, and how they can be used to quickly take your ideas and turn them into beautiful and functional prototypes.

In case if you have a question for our special guest Paul Ruiz, or want to upvote someone's question, please proceed to this page:
