Our September event is dedicated to Flutter and mobile CI/CD.
First Brad Mc Helem will talk about a new flutter library, dart_define. Dart_define helps with flavouring but can do so much more.
Then Sylvia Dieckmann will walk us through setting up a mobile CI/CD pipeline. She will use a flutter app in her demo but the techniques she uses are applicable to native android or ios.
