GDG Ann Arbor and Detroit are teaming up to Host Paul Ruiz from Google, rescheduled from earlier this year.
Have you ever needed to make an app quickly, such as for a hackathon or prototype, but not know where to start? In this talk you will learn about Flutter, Google's cross-OS development platform, as well as Firebase, Google's Backend as a Service (BaaS) platform, and how they can be used to quickly take your ideas and turn them into beautiful and functional prototypes.

Outside of work he makes movie props as a hobby, and is a member of a Star Wars costuming charity where he volunteers at events as various movie characters including an Imperial Snowtrooper, X-Wing Pilot, or Tusken Raider.
