About this event

We are going to have an Intro to Flutter development, and then follow it with a series of weekly Flutter Study Jam sessions.

A more detailed timeline for the Study Jam style sessions will be announced soon. Here is a short list covering what we are planning.

> A Flutter Meetup - Installation, setup, and first apps.
> Hangout session each week following the Meetup - To discuss the next steps, assignments, and challenges to code.
> Slack channel discussions any day between the weekly Hangouts - To provide feedback, suggestions, and assistance on the assignments and challenges.

Here is a list of items to setup your Flutter environment prior to the event:
> Download and Install Android Studio (https://developer.android.com/studio)
> Start Android Studio, and go through the ‘Android Studio Setup Wizard’. This installs the latest Android SDK, Android SDK Platform-Tools, and Android SDK Build-Tools, which are required by Flutter when developing for Android.
> Go to Settings -> Plugins -> Type ‘Flutter’ in search bar under Marketplace -> Install the first result “Flutter” (it should be tagged as a ‘Language’)
> Restart Android Studio
