Through firebase, developers can build apps for multiple platforms using popular frameworks such as Ember.js, Node.js and Java. When developers are ready to deploy their app, whether it's a Web or mobile app, they can do so directly through Firebase's cloud.
The entire team from Firebase will be joining Google but will still be led by Firebase's co-founders James Tamplin and Andrew Lee.
"By combining Firebase with Google Cloud Platform, we'll be able to build the best end-to-end platform for mobile application development, said Greg DeMichillie, director of product management at Google, in a blog post. "If you're already a Firebase developer, you'll start seeing improvements right away and if you're a Google Cloud Platform customer, you'll find it even easier to create great mobile and web apps."
