About this event

Sergej Luhmirin has been developing Android applications in multiple companies over the last 5+ years. Tinkering with Kotlin from its first public releases and using it in production application for the last 10 months. Occasionally giving presentations about Android and Kotlin related topics at developer meetups, such as this one!

About the workshop:

There is a lot of hype surrounding a serverless architecture, and for many products having dedicated servers might not be the most cost-effective. 

Such products are the perfect use case for Firebase, as Firebase Functions allow you to execute computation directly in the cloud without caring about instances, containers and other infrastructure details. 

There is also a lot of hype around Kotlin as well, and after the release of version 1.1 it is possible to transpile Kotlin code to Javascript.

In this workshop we will try combining both of these trendy technologies and see what happens!

As such we hope you will join us and we can take this journey together!
