Over last several years, Google has released an application for its I/O attendees on a regular basis that covers all the best practices of application development of Android. While the app immediately becomes available for download, Google traditionally releases the source codes on GitHub for everyone to understand how to make application run smoother. Earlier today, the company has uploaded the source code of the application known as ‘Google I/O 2017” on GitHub to let you know what kind of new techniques you can implement to your own applications.
If you have followed the application, you might already know that the application added an improved reservation system that enabled everyone to make reservations and join waitlists for different events which made the event more pleasant for everyone. The data from initial reservations was synced to Attendees’ badges which were later verified via their smartphone’s NFC. Additionally, the application used Firebase Realtime Database (RTDB) and Cloud Functions for Firebase to achieve this while cloud function processed requests to keep attendees away from making too much reservations.
Apart from these, the application used a news feed like feature to provide hourly feedback to everyone who attending the event. Although the company uploaded the source code on the platform, Google is actively trying to improve the interface of the application to make it easier to use in the coming months.
