About this event

[You will need Flutter and Android Studio for the flutter jam at this event. If you haven't worked with flutter before, please install in advance: https://jfk.dev/install ]

Cross platform frameworks are among the hottest topics in tech these days. One code base and you have your Android, iOS and web applications all in one. These frameworks, which include Flutter, React and Xamarin, have a lot of benefits such as ease of hosting, cloud integration and are easy to code. You can do the job of three developers by yourself.

Join us This International Women's Day and find out about the current state of cross platform development, its future and see some real life examples of successful cross platform apps. We will be joined by Jeroen Meijer, Flutter and Dart GDE with extensive flutter experience, and Mia Mirecki, a lead flutter developer at Eindhoven-based Dutch Coding Company. After a short talk and a Q&A, you will follow flutter jam, where you can build your own flutter app.
(NB: please note that we have new speakers as our initial speaker, Emily Fortuna is no longer able to join this event.)
