About this event

At this meetup we will look at Firebase as a platform for powering mobile applications - specifically how we can take advantage of the services and tools to rapidly prototype applications and test out ideas and features.

Check out this short (1m 14s) video for an intro:

Or dive deeper at:


16:00 - 16:30: Arrival and Networking

16:30 - 17:30: Introduction to the fast evolving Firebase platform and overview of the tools and services available for developers by Kasper Løvborg Jensen. The talk will focus on how to use Firebase to supercharge the development in early stages (on Android in particular) with Firebase but also touch on other integrations on other platforms and how to leverage other Google Cloud Platform services.

17:30 - 18.00: War stories and pro tips: open mic for the community to share their experiences with Firebase and pass on advise to people looking to get going with the platform.

18:00 - 19:00+: Firebase Code Labs and free hacking. We will move from the auditorium to ORBIT Lab in the next building. Besides Firebase, this will also be a chance to explore a wide range of other technologies and try out some of our gear for e.g. VR (HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Pixel/Android + Daydream) and AR (Android + Tango).

Remember to bring your laptop and fellow developers!

Registration is mandatory, as we need to know how many we need to buy drinks and snacks for. If you want to hang around and hack after the main program, we can organize some pizza :)

Looking forward to seeing you all!
