Now that WWDC has drawn to a close, we couldn’t wait to share the photos of our party on the night of the 5th. We were thrilled to meet and celebrate app development with many of you, including tons of talented developers from Apple, Uber, Spotify, Tinder, and more. With over a thousand RSVPs, it was amazing to see the excitement among the community!
Since we can’t travel back in time, here are some highlights so you can relive the night of fun.
We love our customers - so what better way to show our appreciation then rolling out the red carpet? We also made sure to have friendly hosts to greet you at the door and security guards as rigorous as an IDS.
To make sure you feel right at home at Forager, we meticulously designed the ambience of our event to resemble the look and feel of our product. Throughout the space, we added the Firebase yellow and Fabric blue lighting, custom pillows, stand up tables with chips inside, and more. This way you can mingle with other developers in style.
In addition to finger-licking good appetizers, we even designed two specialty developer cocktails: the Minty Multithread and Nulltonic Expression. Thank you to all those who submitted creative names for our cocktail and congrats to the winners!
Deliciousness aside, we mounted flat screens throughout the venue so you can showcase the apps you’re building and share your passion projects with other developers. For the photo-junkies, we featured a paparazzi style photo booth with whatever witty props that strike your mood (see all the photo booth moments here).
For those who love flexing their knowledge muscle, we brought in the AppShip3000 - our flagship multiplayer game to test your knowledge of Firebase. In case you were new to Firebase and wanted to learn more, we also set up a live coding station so you can see Firebase in action.
Since it’s dub dub, we crafted custom designed iPhone protective cases for you to take home (in case cocktails and holding-onto-phones-after don’t mix). Stylish tees included as usual.
Thank you to all those who joined us for the night - we were glad to share all the laughter with you. Check out our full photo album. (photos credit: Yvonne TNT)
Here’s to next year!
