About this event


Join the Flutter Special Interest Group (SIG) formed from within the Google Developer Group of the Capital Region. We'll take a close look at and get hands-on with Flutter, Google’s new framework for building high-quality cross-platform mobile apps on Android and iOS in record time. It promises native apps with high performance and low development.

Advantages like really well-working hot-reload, complete code sharing for both platforms and a modern, reactive UI framework are just too good to be ignored. Some of the Flutter’s strengths are the easiness to build a fully customized animated graph and the visual highlight of beautiful apps. Flutter works with existing code, is used by developers and organizations around the world, and is free and open source.

Join us to see what it brings to the table for the mobile app developers and learn how to get started to design, develop and deploy Flutter apps.

Come to see how Flutter and the architecture patterns that can help give your 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 it’s already great to be taken for.

Feel free to bring your own laptop to follow along with Flutter install.
