Auphonic was founded and developed by deeply talented sound engineers and technologists firmly rooted in all things audio. In its brief existence, Auphonic has developed a partner community dedicated to growing the sound technology world through education and research (i.e. Podlove, Science Park Graz, IEM, and Graz University of Technology).
Firebase, real-time backend for web application development, originally launched a little over a year ago. Since its launch, Firebase has remained in beta while it continued to improve its service and build a customer base. Over the past year, Firebase has added features, functionality, and thousands of customers. Accordingly, Firebase has announced it is leaving its beta stages behind and publically launching as a full-fledged paid product.
