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:

  • What Flutter is
  • Get introduced to Dart
  • Build native iOS and Android apps from one codebase
