I haven't been this excited since Bootstrap was released for developing responsive websites. Except maybe when I first heard Jim Morrison sing "Come on baby light my fire". The new platform called Firebase is awesome. It can't be understated how important this shift is for Google and for Firebase. They provided a simple and unified platform with so many of the best Google features packed in. When creating our apps, we as developers need to go and grab a bunch of different services to create what we want. Now its all there at our finger tips; hosting, security, analytics, cloud and so much more.
