Deepa Subramanian, Frontend Engineer
“If you are a beginner, start building small projects. You will need to be consistently learning.”
Q: What Google tools have you used?A: I am a frontend engineer, having used Angular framework for building single-page applications, and using Chrome dev tools, like Puppeteer, Lighthouse, and more. I have also built progressive web app projects using project Fugu API’s to add to homescreen, badging, file share API etc. I am excited to see more API’s in the future.
Q: Which tool has been your favorite to use? Why?A: I enjoy using Firebase for authentication and realtime databases as it makes my life easier as a frontend engineer.
Q: Please share something you have built in the past using Google tools.A: In the past, I have built small applications using Android and Java. My first Google tool that I used was Android studio where I built small Android applications using Java (this was back in 2017). Then, I moved to the web. Currently, I am also using the Flutter web platform.
Q: What advice would you give someone starting in their developer journey?A: If you are a beginner, start building small projects. You will need to be consistently learning. I would urge everyone to join a developer community like GDG. It helps you grow and network with other developers.
