Firebase Alexa

Alexa is a voice assistant platform from Amazon, that makes it easy to build voice-driven applications. Firebase is a comprehensive app platform from Google that makes it easy to do… a lot of things. Taking advantage of both makes it easy to build Alexa skills that take the conversation well beyond the Alexa environment itself.

We'll walk through the setup and architecture of a simple skill that takes advantage of the Alexa platform to interact with applications outside the Alexa environment, with activity in the conversation with Alexa being reflected in the changing display of a single-page web application.

Heat Up Your EmberJS App with Firebase

Ember is a popular javascript framework with a powerful data management library called Ember Data. Firebase is a suite of cloud tools by Google, including a realtime database that makes data synchronization very easy. Ember also has a library called EmberFire, which makes it easy to add Firebase support to an Ember application!

In this presentation, the audience will learn about Ember's data model to provide a context to how data from Firebase will be managed in the client. Then, a quick overview of the Firebase Realtime Database dashboard. The presentation will conclude with a review of an actual Ember Firebase application, likely a simple online multiplayer game, to illustrate how effective this arrangement can be!
