About this event

Flutter is Google’s mobile app SDK for crafting high-quality native interfaces on iOS and Android in record time. Flutter works with existing code, is already used by developers and organisations around the world, and is free and open source.

If you want to get started on building Flutter apps, join us for our Flutter Study Jam! Together we'll work through Flutter Udacity Course materials prepared by Google instructors. You will be able to get hands-on experience with Flutter and build a Flutter app while learning the fundamentals.

This is the first of three sessions. The second session will be on October 18 and the third and final session will be on November 21.

Please bring bring a laptop! The course material will run on all of the latest versions of popular browsers and for the best experience, the laptop should already have Flutter installed on it prior to starting the study jam to save time. Windows/Linux/Mac should all be fine.

Study Jams are *not* traditional instructor-led, classroom-based trainings. Instead they're better described as "guided hackathons" in which everyone works together to understand and learn new things.

Thanks a lot to our friends at BizDojo Tory Street who let us use their events space for the Flutter Study Jam.

Rough agenda for session 1:

- Flutter Udacity Course Introduction
- Working through the first parts of the Udacity Course Lesson 1
