About this event

Real-time applications provide so much functionality across so many different types of applications. There's Google Drive real-time editing, Twitter showing new tweets, any new chat system built recently, and so many more.

Firebase is an API service to store and sync data in real-time. What this means is that you don't have to worry about the backend server, database, or real-time component. All of that is handled for you by Firebase.

In this meetup we'll be playing with some demos, exploring the dashboard, and build a sample application with Firebase so we get a stronger understanding of what it does.

Feel free to look at Firebase before the meetup. Attendees are more than welcome to present any applications they've built with Firebase for imaginary bonus points! :)
