Discovering awesome parties at AmpMe


by Michael Mimeault

AmpMe let you join music parties around you hosted by other AmpMe users on both iOS and Android. Finding nearby parties sound trivial for a user. But technically we had to face many problematics related to device models, android versions, offline versus online, and non-precise GPS locations. By the end of this talk, you will understand all the possibilities and complexities of each technologies integrated in the app.


I joined AmpMe in September 2015 as an Android developer with 0 background in Android development. I previously worked for Wajam and Spotr, where I learned really good development practices within a big data infrastructure environment.

Firebase remote-config to rollout features


by Alan Le Corre

You have a new feature in development and want to do some tests or collect data before the official release. But you don’t want to be dependant on App updates to enable the feature. You also want a master switch to shut it down without publishing a new App in the store, just in case. You may also want to tweak some parameters or rules on the fly, or a sandbox for internal testing. Of course you want to apply that on both iOS and Android, but somewhat be independant. Then you may want to test it with a few users first, or activate it upon some conditions. We will learn how to do that with Firebase remote-config.
