What we are about:

Google Developer Group of the Capital Region - Flutter Group.
This group is for mobile developers interested in Flutter, Google’s new mobile UI framework for crafting high-quality native interfaces on iOS and Android in record time.

Whether you are just starting a new Flutter project, or an experienced developer looking to discuss advanced topics, you are welcome to join our group and share your ideas with us!


Join the Google Developer Group of the Capital Region - Flutter Group We will take a look at Flutter to investigate what it brings to the table for mobile app developers. We will learn how to get started using Flutter to design, develop and deploy native apps with high performance and low development costs. Flutter works with existing code, is used by developers and organizations around the world and is free and open source.

We will work on a very simple Flutter app using a step-by-step Google tutorial. Together we will discover advantages like hot-reload, complete code sharing for both platforms and a modern, reactive UI framework. We will discuss which architecture patterns can help give your Flutter
apps a testable, reusable, and cohesive structure.

After the talk, you hopefully will have a better picture of what Flutter is capable of, its state of maturity and which use-cases for which it is already being used.
