Mon, Apr 15, 2019, 6:00 PM (CEST)

About this event

Flutter is Google’s mobile app SDK for crafting high-quality native interfaces on iOS and Android with the same codebase in record time. It is used by developers and organizations around the world and it is free and open source.

In this event, you will get to know about Flutter. It is the second event of two where you get a full understanding of Flutter.

18.00 - 18.10 - Welcome

18.15 - 18.55 - Booting Fuchsia, burying Android, Rubén Serrano. How many Android devices can update to the newest OS version after 2 years? In case you are a mobile developer, how it feels supporting different OS versions that can behave completely different? How many times have you wished to use any language as a first-class citizen for mobile development? In this talk we will show how Fuchsia addresses the former problems with its modular design and its new kernel created from scratch (no Linux here); its use of AI; and its UI SDK, based on Flutter, which also lets you reuse the app for Android and iOS (and other desktop OS and the web in the near future). But it doesn't stop here, and Fuchsia will be the OS for any kind of device, from IoT devices to the Cloud.

19.00 - 19.45 - New kid in the BLoC, Filipe A. Barroso. The goal of this talk is that the end of 40 minutes you will have a better understanding of state management in Flutter, through BLoC, InheritedWidget & Scoped model, Redux, and less known MobX. So that in your next Flutter project you will have better confidence in why you pick one and not the other.

19.45 - 20.30 - The sharp Corners of BLoC, Katarina Sheremet.

20.30 - 21.00 - Networking
