With practically every in-person event has been canceled this summer, Google is announcing a couple of virtual events. These developer-focused events will be for Firebase and Chrome web.dev, held this June and July. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Firebase Live (June 9th – July 7th): A 5-part weekly web series for developers consisting of talks, technical tutorials, and live Q&As to help increase developer productivity and collaboration.

  • Chrome Web.dev Live (June 30th – July 2nd): a three-day digital event for web developers to learn more about the latest news and techniques across web development.

Firebase Live will be held each Tuesday at 9:30 AM PST. Here’s the weekly topic schedule:

  • 6/09: Unit testing Security Rules with the new Firebase Emulator Suite
  • 6/16: The Local Firebase Emulator UI in 15 minutes
  • 6/23: Developer’s Guide to Google Analytics
  • 6/30: Sign in with Apple using Firebase Authentication
  • 7/07: Getting Started with Google Analytics for Firebase in Unity

Chrome Web.dev Live will be held during three different time zones so questions can be answered in real-time from a variety of regions. Each day, the 3-hour stream will take place at these times:

  • June 30th, 9am – 12pm PDT (Optimized for developers in the Americas)
  • July 1st, 12pm – 3pm GMT (Optimized for developers in Europe & Africa)
  • July 2nd, 1pm – 4pm IST (Optimized for developers in Asia & Australia)

Head on over to the Firebase Live event page to sign up for updates. You can also head over to the Web.dev Live event page for updates. It’s a bummer than many of these events can’t be held in person, but at least Google is making the best of the situation with virtual events.
