Flutter is a new cross-mobile framework and platform (using a custom language, Dart, that started out as a Javascript-transpiling target before it was adopted by Flutter) from Google that looks to solve some of the classic problems--such as state management and component reuse--that the native mobile languages/platforms don't really solve. In this session, we'll take a pass-through Dart, see how Flutter works, and discuss where this fits in the world next to Xamarin, Javascript-based toolkits like Cordova, and native Swift/iOS or Kotlin/Android.

You will learn:

  • To pick-up the basics of Flutter and Dart
  • How Flutter interacts with mobile devices
  • Some of the power of Flutter's approach to UI
