Monthly Meetup – May 2019

IMPORTANT Note #1: There’s a first for everything, this month we’ll be the guests of the hard working folks of the NS (Nederlandse Spoorwegen) IT department however – very unfortunately – their operational colleagues have announced a STRIKE for this day. So if you’re planning to come by train please check beforehand if you’re affected: https://www.ns.nl/reisplanner#/. Both NS IT department and DomCode are really sorry about this but this is out of our control.

IMPORTANT Note #2: The entrance of the location is at Utrecht Central Station behind the gates which means you need a valid OV chip card (which won’t be charged). If you don’t have one please let us know we arrange something for you.

Mobile apps have been with us since the early 2000’s and have come a long way since then. As a developer there is still one hurdle though: you have to maintain versions for each major platform…

But what if you didn’t have to?, At this months meetup Dylan Drost will introduce us to the wonderful cross platform flutter development framework!

Our new friends at the IT department of NS (https://werkenbijns.nl/) will provide the space, food and drinks!

Schedule
19:00 – Doors open with food & drinks
19:30 – Welcome
19:35 – Talk: Creating a Flutter app
20:25 – Raffle & News
20:30 – Social!

Talk: Let’s take a dive into the flutter framework and see why it might be a good solution for creating cross platform app on mobile while still running natively.
