This meetup brings technical people together to know each other face to face, share experiences, and further our knowledge of the Android platform. From Phones to Tablets to Auto to Wear to TV to infinity and beyond!
Join us for the August DC Flutter meetup, another exciting event featuring a presentation by the team that developed the Flutter EventsPLUS app. This will be a technical deep dive into how they built a multi-platform, real-time, highly customizable mobile conference app.

7:30p - Q & A
8:00 pm - Networking and Wrap-up
In this talk, you will learn about different aspects of Flutter development and how we used them in the EventsPLUS app. We will discuss view hierarchies and explore the benefits of using certain design patterns and practices. We will also talk about different Flutter app architecture patterns and the benefits and drawbacks of using Streams versus the BLoC architecture with RxDart.
Our Flutter app uses Firebase, and you will learn how to integrate Cloud Firestore with your next Flutter application! You will also learn how to make your Flutter application stand out with custom ThemeData and Hero animations. Additionally, we will give an introduction to some popular plugins that were used in the EventsPLUS app such as shared preferences and Flutter advanced network image. Come learn about these interesting topics and see how they helped us build a highly customizable events app!
