Interesting talks

In this one-day one track tech talk event, full of amazing and professional presentations from the Google Firebase community. Moreover, its very well-organized and well-trained speakers make the talks attractive and informative. For instance, the Firebase extension is one of the new features that is still under alpha during this conference. I find it really amazing and useful from a developer’s point of view. Thus, you should definitely try it out if you are using Firebase in your application!

It’s another interesting thing about the monitoring and altering feature that Firebase provided. Concluding, streamline services that Firebase provides are really easy for developers to ship their app faster and without anxieties. 

Learnings and takeaways

  • Firebase extensions! This is the alpha feature you will be looking forward when developing your app. 
  • Firebase crashlytics help you grow the app faster.
  • Women tech maker has a well-organized breakfast reception in the summit, networking and meeting all awesome women in tech is just an amazing part of the conference!
  • My advice for you: attend at least one code lab and meet at least 5 new faces, and enjoy the rest of the conference!
