Flutter BootCamp Vadodara – Week 3

Description:

Flutter is an open source SDK for creating high-performance, high-fidelity mobile apps for iOS and Android. The Flutter framework makes it facile for you to build user interfaces that react smoothly in your app, while reducing the amount of code required to synchronize and update your app’s view.

Flutter makes it easy to get started building beautiful apps, with its rich set of Material Design (Android) and Cupertino (iOS) widgets and behaviors. The users love the app’s natural look and feel because Flutter implements platform-specific scrolling, navigational patterns, fonts, and more. One will feel powerful and productive with Flutter’s functional-reactive framework and its extremely fast hot reloads on devices and emulators.

Flutter apps are written in Dart. Dart syntax is familiar to Java, JavaScript, C#, or Swift. Dart is compiled using the standard Android and iOS tool-chains for the specific mobile platform where the app needs to run. Dart language provides us with the benefits like familiar and concise syntax, first-class functions, async/await, rich standard libraries, and more.

Given below are the key salient features of Flutter:

Native Performance

Fast development

Expressive, beautiful UIs

Date and Time: June 30, 2019 – 1000 to 1600 IST Hours.

Personal Note:

Flutter Boot-Camp Vadodara is a joint alliance of DSC SVIT & DSC PU. The maxim of the boot-camp was to edify the audience new technologies like FLUTTER and DART made by GOOGLE and its benefits in building cross-platform apps and we were flabbergasted by the response we got in return which was simply an eye-opener.

So, week 3 of our boot-camp was where all the magic happened and the participants got the chance to show their adroitness. Pooja Bhaumik; GDE of flutter was the speaker for week 3 at our boot-camp and simply her presence itself made everyone motivated and keep the zeal flowing through the participants constantly. Pooja first started with her introduction and introduced everyone to DASH (Dart’s mascot)! After that, she talked about “it’s all widgets” with the audience and what is it? Then she introduced participants to APIs and what are APIs and how they can call APIs for easy-building of an app on Flutter.

After so much of intake of knowledge in the first session, it was time for a lunch-break!

And Domino’s reached out to help us!

After having a hefty lunch, Pooja continued with the second session and covered Tabs, Futures, async, await, network images and a whole lot of new things. Then we learnt how to integrate Firebase with our Flutter app and to make it cooler. Then Pooja arranged a mini-hackathon challenge type session where all the participants’ newly learned skills were put to test and were asked to develop an app with cool UI and the winner will get a Google I/O’s Flutter tee! And we had a winner who built a very detailed app with a smooth UI.

But this wasn’t the end of the day, we had a small celebration with Pooja Bhaumik and had a dinner party at successfully completing week 3 and also thanking Pooja to accept our invite and to come at the boot-camp and to share with us all her experiences, knowledge and giving us the privilege to host her. Also, we celebrated her Article on Flutter’s “Push, Pop, Push” 1st Anniversary.

THANKS A LOT!
