About this event

In case you missed it, Google is hosting the Firebase Summit the 26th of September in Madrid.

Should you not have the chance to go there yourself, no worries!
Just the day after the Firebase Summit we're having Jacob Wang and Hiranya Jayathilaka, both Firebase Googlers, join us to tell us all about what's new in Firebase.

We hope to see you at the Google office in Amsterdam!

What’s new in Firebase - Jacob Wang
Firebase is Google's mobile development platform for Android, iOS, and the web. In this session, you'll learn recent changes to Firebase that are specifically targeted towards building large-scale applications with complex development teams. By the end of this session, you'll see how you can take advantage of the power of Firebase in your app right now.

Jacob is a Software Engineer on the Firebase team. He works on the backend of Firebase console, which builds the platform to support various Firebase product teams

Integrating Firebase into your existing infrastructure - Hiranya Jayathilaka
Developing feature-rich apps often requires integrating with heterogeneous backend systems. Firebase and Google Cloud provide several features that make such integrations simpler. We'll explore how to access Firebase data and user accounts from your existing backend systems.
We'll also demonstrate how to develop new serverless components in different programming languages to add new capabilities to your apps. You will learn how to manage your app's user accounts, respond to critical application events, and enrich Firebase data from backend components deployed in environments like App Engine and Cloud Functions, as well as environments that you maintain and control.

Hiranya is a tech lead on the Firebase team. He works on the Firebase Admin SDKs, which enable server-side and backend integrations of Firebase.
