Building Bulder Bank from idea to production in 12 months

HÃ¥kon Nilsen

Short talk - in English

29th of August 2018, Sparebanken Vest announced it would launch a new, next-generation mobile bank within a year. From this point on the idea was worked into concepts and radical solutions for the future of banking. From a technical standpoint we were required to deliver a lot of functionality on a very tight schedule, which meant some bold and drastic thinking.

This is the short talk about why we chose Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes, micro service, event driven architecture - and how we built a bank on top of Firebase. We will also reveal if we hit the mark and what happened when we finally launched just 12 months later.
