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:

  • Pick up the basics of Flutter and Dart
  • Understand how Flutter interacts with mobile devices
  • See some of the power of Flutter's approach to UI
