Are you looking for a technology to build an Android or iOS app?
Are you looking to do both?
Flutter may be the solution for you!
As a part of the festivities in the lead-up to the DroidConToronto (previously AndroidTO, http://androidto.com) in November, the GDG Toronto Group is excited to present a Flutter Study Jam!
For those of you who may have not yet had opportunities to work with Flutter (https://flutter.io) yet, it is being touted as Google's Mobile SDK (Software Development Kit) with an aim of "Helping developers craft high-quality native experiences across mobile platforms in record time."
This Study Jam will be our chance to kick the tires on this framework and see if it delivers the goods!
For this session, the doors will open at 6:00 pm. We will start the event at 6:30 sharp.
## Study Jam Series Format
The Study Jam will be very similar in format to our recent Study Jam series on FireBase, Flutter and TensorFlow.
After the kick-off, participants will be expected to complete the relevant course materials in the lead-up to each scheduled session.
In-class sessions will be a hybrid of lecture (~30 minutes) and hands-on coding / development time (~90 minutes).
Lecture segments will cover:
- brief review of key concepts
- supplemental materials related to app development
- supplemental materials related to releasing applications on to the various App Stores for distribution
