Our mission is to build and nurture a thriving community of Software Developers in St. John’s by providing a place to connect, share new ideas, and learn from each other. NDev features monthly tech talks from members of the software development community that will always be free to attend. We encourage anyone interested in software development regardless of skill level to join, attend one of our Meetups, and meet new friends and mentors! Feel free to join us on Slack as well at http://slack.ndev.co/
This month Michael Burton will be giving a talk about real-time collaboration using firebase. Mike is a software developer at Celtx and is the founder of Perfect Minute Games. See below for details!
Talk title: Realtime Collaboration (with Firebase)
This talk will provide an introduction to the theory and implementation of realtime collaboration in web and web-like applications. Theory covered will include Operational Transformations (OT), Conflict-free Replicated Data Types (CRDT), as well as historical models of realtime collaborative editing. Obstacles common to practical implementations will be discussed. The talk will also include a practical demonstration using a pseudo-OT implementation with Google's Firebase Realtime Database.
A big thanks goes out to Mike for putting this talk together, and to Bitters for hosting us again. As always, feel free to hang out afterwards for some food, drink, and great conversation!
See you there!
Mike & Scott
