This month we'll talk about Firebase and give away a ticket to Indie DevStock in Nashville. Firebase has evolved into a full backend service to provide developers with authentication, storage, analytics, notifications, a realtime database, and other useful tools. Gavin Wiggins, @wigging, will give an overview of the service along with a demo of Firebase features on iOS. This month we will also give away a ticket (valued at $570) to the upcoming Indie DevStock in Nashville on September 16-17. Don't worry if you don't win the ticket, we also have discount codes for registration. You must attend the meeting for a chance to win the ticket or get a discount code.
