Welcome to the 9th edition of Firebase News. Thank you all for spreading the word and increasing our readership. We again set a new readership record thanks you you all!
Update on fireRun.io: Since our launch of 🔥fireRun.io🔥 - a new way to manage and reduce your Firebase costs - we’ve had a fantastic number of new users join. We’ve also had a few growing pains, and I can’t thank our users enough for their patience and feedback. Please give fireRun.io a spin - it is free and we think you’ll find it valuable.
