Flipper is a platform for debugging mobile and web apps. Half a year ago, we decided to split the electron monolith in two parts: a standalone server and a UI. In this talk, we'll cover why you need headless Flipper, what opportunities it unlocks for you. We’ll go over how Flipper can now be easily used for remote debugging, embedding, CI integration, and etc. We’ll overview how Flipper architecture transformed to support the migration, what Flipper is now, and how we plan to use it at Meta.
"Hi there 👋 My name is Andrey G. I am a software engineer from London, UK. Primarily, I am a full-stack web developer (think React, Angular, Node.js), but I also have a keen interest in low-level stuff (hello, C) and finance (love-hate relationship with Pandas). Career: Full-stack (web, blockchain, and even a bit of embedded) at software consultancies -> Headed front-end development at Hazelcast -> Front-end at Bricks (next-gen spreadsheet web app) -> Full-time maintainer of Flipper at Meta (ex-Facebook). I write about tech in my small blog. Occasionally, I speak at conferences. I am currently pursuing a Master's in Computer Science (OMSCS) from Georgia Tech. I love math, physics, rational thinking, and figuring out how things work. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, snowboarding, boxing, and weight lifting."
