It's been a little while since I did a "This Week in Firebase" post, and I'm hoping to go back to doing a regular posting of some of the cool stuff in the Firebase community that's been on my reading list. If you have any articles, open source projects, apps, books or anything that you've contributed to that you'd like me to highlight, please get in touch using the comments below!
Here's some of the great stuff that I've discovered this week:
Women TechMakers (@WomenTechMakers) announced a travel grant to the Firebase Dev Summit. We greatly welcome women in technology, and I can personally attest that some of the finest people I have worked with, and continue to work with are women. We need more of you in our industry. Please come to the summit if you can!
