[#GameUpAfrica] Why adding Firebase to your Game is a pro gamer move

Creating a videogame can be quite a complex task: more than developing the game's logic, you might want to give your players the ability to synchronize their high score across multiple devices, check their friend's scores and maybe even get some cool seasonal bonuses/power-ups.

In this 45min talk, Rosário will be giving an overview of the Firebase tools which are available for game developers and some of the best use cases for them.

Expect to come out of the session with some knowledge about: Admob, Analytics, Authentication, Cloud Firestore, Cloud Storage and other Firebase tools.
