Cloud Functions for Firebase & ​Auger Labs     

Building a company in a 100% NoOps, serverless environment    Company  Auger  (​www.augerlabs.com​)  is  a  mobile  apps-as-a-service  company  for  the  art  community.  Artists  receive  their  own  beautifully  designed,  custom-branded  Android  and  iOS  apps  tailored  with  their  own  content  and  featuring  advanced  technologies  such  as  image  scanning  and 

 

recognition, augmented reality, GPS mapping, eCommerce, deeplinking, and beacon sensing.

setup,  easy  to  develop,  and  scaled  effortlessly.  Moreover,  he  wanted  a  solution  backed  by an 

 

innovative yet financially stable company like Google that wouldn’t shut down the service.   - ​Brian Jenkins,  Founder & CEO 

                                         

  Implementation  was  easy  enough  that  junior  developers  were  able  to  rapidly  prototype  solutions.  Moreover,  development  time  was dramatically reduced due to availability of Node.js  sample  code  for  many  common  implementations.  Firebase  architecture  now  provides  all  of  Auger’s  mobile  and  cloud  services  without  requiring  servers,  VMs,  or  containers  and  without  the  associated  human  capital  required  to  stand-up  and  maintain  backend  systems.  Brian has  not hired a DevOps team, and doesn’t plan to.

Use cases  Requirements:  ●

a solution that provides traditional server-based, backend services but without requiring traditional DevOps; 



the ability to write backend code without managing servers, VMs, or containers; 



a modern technology stack like Node.js to leverage a breadth of JavaScript expertise; 



an event-driven service that allows us to automate the operations of backend functions; 



a service that easily integrates with our front-end web app, our realtime cloud database, and our cloud storage  services; 



a service that scales on-demand; 



a service that integrates with our Continuous Integration (CI) service; 



a service that works well with our staging and production environments.

Auger’s use cases:  ●

Image Processing for Performance​:​ provide unlimited cloud storage for high resolution art images, so ​every time  an image is uploaded to Firebase Storage, a Cloud Function executes to create thumbnails for enhanced mobile  app responsiveness. 



Image Processing for Scanning​: provide mobile visual scanning and image recognition, so ​every time an image is  uploaded to Firebase Storage, a Cloud Function executes ​to create a machine-recognizable image. 



Image Processing for Search​: ​building a way for art lovers to search for interesting artwork, so ​every time an  image is uploaded to Firebase Storage, a Cloud Function executes to find searchable labels for the image. 



Payment Processing​ for CMAaaS​: every time a customer purchases their custom mobile app, a Cloud Function  executes that sends the secure payment information for payment processing. 



Payment Processing for eCommerce​: every time an art buyer purchases artwork through the customer’s custom  app, a Cloud Function executes ​that sends the secure payment information for payment processing and directly  pays the customer​. 



Deferred Deeplinking​: every time a new custom app is created, a Cloud Function is executed to create the  configuration for deferred deeplinking, where shared links bring users directly to the app’s artwork or, if not  already installed, will allow them to install the app prior to displaying the artwork. 



Location Processing​: every time a customer adds a business or artwork location, a Cloud Function executes that  processes the location for inclusion on maps. 



Slack Notifications​: Cloud Functions send notifications to Slack so team members can monitor events.  



Email Notifications​: Cloud Functions notify customers via email when their custom apps are available in Apple’s  App Store and Google’s Play Store.
