HootChat is a messaging chat application inspired by Hootsuite apps.

What it does

Group chat conversation

How we built it

We've used the brand new Firebase released in Google I/O 2016 alongside Swift in XCode 7

Challenges we ran into

Working with a backend solution that is new on the market and exploring the features can be hard. There is not much material available as well as other projects to use as examples. We've sorted it out using Google's amazing documentation as well as Google I/O videos and sample code

Acomplishments that we're proud of

We're really happy to have acomplished building an app in a new ecosystem in a short amount of time.

What we learned

We've learned to work with the Firebase's core functions and integrate them in our code
