For 360|AnDev this year, we built a web front-end to help manage the speaker submission process and scheduling details. The apps was built using AngularJS and connected into the existing Firebase database we initially starting using last year. Similar to my initial Firebase reactions, AngularJS made things much easier than I had expected.
As one of the co-organizers of 360|AnDev, I took it upon myself to build the conference Android app. To avoid the headaches of setting up back-end infrastructure, I turned to Firebase to provide the services we needed to get the job done.
