About this event

We begin the autumn Meetups season with a session dedicated to Firebase. The platform has been growing fast and Google is pushing it forward more and more.

In this edition we have invited a special guest (Jon Mensing, Product Manager at Google), to show us some of the lesser known features of Firebase that can make our lives easier during development and release.

19:05 - 20:05: Running and Growing live apps with Firebase - Jon Mensing
You may be familiar with Firebase as a realtime database in the Cloud, but it's much, much more. In this session we'll discuss how Firebase can be used to improve your live app's quality, manage feature rollouts, perform A/B tests, send notifications, and more.

Jon Mensing is a Product Manager at Google who focuses on messaging and testing features within Firebase. His past experience includes work at BuzzFeed and Zynga. Jon has an MBA from Wharton, a Master of Public Policy degree from the Harvard Kennedy School, and a B.S. in Computer Science from the U.S. Air Force Academy.
