Have you heard about Flutter (https://flutter.dev/)? It's google's cross platform (creates apps for iOS and Android using the same code) app creation package. If anything, stick around for the "hot code reload." It's magical!

I've been learning Flutter with YouTube videos and blogs for only 2 weeks and I already have an app with a map, table view, and navigation. The same thing would have taken me months with iOS, even more time with Android.

Bottom line, if you're interested in learning how to create cross platform apps with Flutter, attend this meetup.

Here's what I'll be covering:

1) Install Flutter
2) Set up a sample project
3) Tweak the sample code to set up navigation
4) Show the app running on iOS and Android

If there's time after the demo, I'll share the best Flutter resources I've found online. Then let's have a discussion about Flutter plugins, hot reload, and any questions that come up during the meetup.

Thanks to Eric for putting Flutter on my radar. Any questions? Leave them in the comments!
