Join us for a talk about "Firebase for the Web" in which Sumit Chandel will share some updates that are too important not to share! The Firebase team recently announced some important web updates at the Firebase Summit last month - web support for Analytics, Remote Config and Firebase Cloud Messaging. You could do some pretty cool things with these features already in your Android or iOS mobile apps, and now you can also do 'em for your web apps - or heck even across all your platforms. With Analytics, you can learn how you're users are using your app. With Remote Config, you can change the look and feel of your app on the fly for different groups of users segmented by your Analytics data, or other web-specific conditions like the user's browser or platform. And with Firebase Cloud Messaging, you can send and target your notifications to your users by segment or any other criteria important to you. Come learn about what these new features are all about, and how to use them in your web apps. About the speaker: Sumit Chandel (@s_chande) works as a senior developer advocate on Firebase, focusing on developer outreach both digitally and in-person by presenting at conferences and meetups globally. Before joining the Firebase team, Sumit managed the AdWords API advocacy team, worked on Android Wear and Instant Apps, and was a developer programs engineer on the Google Web Toolkit. Prior to joining Google, Sumit was a software engineer at Motorola, Optimal Payments and Westfield Insurance Group.
