About this event

Flutter is a free and open-source software development kit created by Google, that enables you to develop applications for both Android and iOS using a single codebase. With Flutter, you can design beautiful and modern UIs, and develop fast and high-performance native apps for your company, startup, … helping designers, prototypers and developers.

For your reference, here are some Flutter videos that let you have a deep dive into this framework: .

In this tech talk, you will learn the basics of the Flutter SDK programming with Filipe Barroso, a software developer that has been advocating the new Flutter SDK by Google, around Portugal, by organizing Flutter Talks and workshops.

The event will take place on 1st of July 2019, at 09:30 am, in the Jesuits' College of Funchal, one of the most remarkable historic buildings of the island, with more than 400 years of existence.

This workshop is intended for people who have already some experience with programming in mobile and new to Flutter development.

The workshop will be tended in English. Despite this, there, you will be invited to ask questions (don’t be afraid of), to suggest, to try, to fail, to play… in Portuguese (if you can’t speak English) or in English.

In the following days, after the end of the workshop, we will send to your email your certificate of participation in the workshop, so you can share with your friends what have you just conquered!

Just bring a computer with the peripherals that you use on a normal day. Further information about the software that you need to have pre-installed on your computer, for the workshop, will be sent to your email a few days before it. Thus, in the day, we can jump right into the framework.

We will provide you with a free wireless connection and access to all the files used during the talk so that you can review and try it at home.
