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
