Details

Happy Chinese New Year to those celebrating! This month let's talk Firebase Push Notifications and also about Open Data Day 2019! πŸŽ‰

The main talk of the evening will be about Firebase Push Notifications. Firebase https://firebase.google.com/ is platform that provides several services to make app development much simpler and the focus of this talk will be more about Push Notifications via their Cloud Messaging feature https://firebase.google.com/docs/cloud-messaging/ (will focus on desktop use but Firebase Cloud Messaging / FCM is also used for mobile push notifications)

Also as Open Data Day is coming next month on 2nd March https://opendataday.org/ it would be great to discuss possible projects to work on or even things people would be interested to learn about πŸ˜ƒ In the past year I created http://thewheat.github.io/data.gov.bn-data based on data from data.gov.bn and am curious to see what can be worked on this year!
