What's Flutter and why should I try it?

A presentation at MobiConf in in Kraków, Poland by Horacio Gonzalez

What’s that Flutter everybody in mobile development is talking about these days? Another new thing that will be forgotten by this time next year or a true revolution in mobile apps development? Is it really worth my time?

In this talk I’m going to introduce you to Flutter, Google’s mobile app SDK for crafting high-quality native interfaces for iOS and Android in record time. Flutter works with existing code, is used by developers and organizations around the world, and is a free and open source.

O.K., I recognize that was the commercial pitch… but I am going way further that commercial pitch. I am going to show you the features that make Flutter one of the most pleasant and productive development platforms I’ve seen, I am going to show you how you can use Flutter to create beautiful UI with fewer lines of code and minimal boilerplate. And I will also show the points where Flutter needs improvement, and what the Flutter team and community is doing to address them.
