(No obnoxious TL;DR. If you’re in a rush, skip to my 5 points below.)
After developing for iOS for years then moving on to management, my passion in my free time is still writing backends and mobile apps. Apart from getting obsessed with Neo4j , then Golang many years ago, I haven’t been more excited since then about a new technology like Dart and Flutter .
Flutter is a new mobile app SDK to help developers and designers build modern mobile apps for iOS and Android. [ link ]
Dart is an application programming language that’s easy to learn, easy to scale, and deployable everywhere. [ link ]
I plan to blog on some of the iOS apps I am now re-writing using Flutter, rather than React Native. Note that I have used a bit of React Native in the past, and React for web apps extensively, I still think Flutter will take off in 2018. Here’s why:
I plan to re-write a few of my side projects ( Steady Calendar , and Brewswap ) that are iOS only now using Flutter next month. I’ve already started to learn Dart and create some test apps but to be honest, my gut is telling me this is going to be a well adopted framework in 2018.
Stay tuned for some tutorials next month: @seenickcode
