18:50 - 19:45 Use Firebase authentication and Cloud Firestore to easily integrate authentication and realtime sharing in your apps by Oskar Hojwall


Learn how to easily add a sign in solution to your app to secure your API. By using Firebase Authentication it's easy to add username / password authentication as well as third party integrations such as Google or Facebook. Cloud Firestore is Google's new NoSQL cloud database that enables realtime synchronization between clients and offline support.

The talk will feature a presentation about the benefits of these services as well as live coding to see how it can be added to a project.
