I've always wanted to develop something with Firebase. Never had the chance to. My clients also prefer to avoid uncontrollably scaling solutions as well.

But today, I wrote a small & optional Firestore feature: a small "query miss tracker". Whenever the search query of a user yields a miss, we store & count this miss across all users (anonymously). It's JS code is insanely compact:

async function storeDictMiss(query: string): Promise<void> {
  const doc = firestore.doc('/querymiss/', firestore.toPath(word))
  const snapshot = await firestore.getDoc(doc)
  if (!snapshot.exists()) {
    await firestore.setDoc(doc, {
      count: 1,
  else {
    await firestore.updateDoc(doc, {
      count: snapshot.data().count + 1,
Don't mind firestore.toPath(...), it's a simple helper function to strip the user input of illegal characters such as / to avoid XSS injection.

But now, with just a couple lines of code (and another 2 for anonymous authentication), we can easily track which queries in our app lead to missing results. Much easier than anticipated!

Note: using Firebase JS SDK for this project, despite existence of react-native-firebase, to avoid more complex setup.

Let's redefine what it means for a social app to be social. Everything in Realifed is being designed with the purpose of bringing friends closer together. To help people identify the friends who are important to them, the activities they enjoy doing, and to fill up their social calendar with plans that enrich their life.

We have not only an opportunity, yet a responsibility, to shape the future of social interactions off of digital devices, and using technology to facilitate this.

While I am based in Miami, I am open to work with a technical co-founder anywhere in the western hemisphere. I have 20+ years  leading digital products for Univision and Tigo.

Looking for an experienced and innovating technologist to partner with for the development of Realifed on iOS and Android, with a solid architecture at its core. Development expected to begin in August / September timeframe with an application development partner (currently exploring options)

Role would receive significant equity in company. At start, responsibilities could be part-time
