- How to be a happy developer and is it time to learn Flutter? @ ANWB
The September meetup will be hosted at the office of ANWB in The Hague! With this time a talk about Flutter by Andras Kurucz and David Broza, engineers at ANWB and a talk about developer happiness by Thijs of Q42. TALK 1: Is it time to learn Flutter? - Andras Kurucz & David Broza Flutter is another cross-platform mobile development framework booming in the market recently. Native App development always proved to be better, but since Flutter apps landed in app stores, there is no way to tell whether they were built with Flutter or natively. What is it that makes Flutter feel so native? Can we replace our Native app with Flutter? At ANWB we support 5 different apps at the moment, all of them are built natively for Android and iOS. Unifying the stack for one or more of those can sound like the dream to increase our productivity. Flutter is still in an early phase, but the new packages are growing rapidly and they are adding support for more and more things. TALK 2: Nerds can make or break a product - Thijs Suijten Have you ever been working on features you don’t believe in? Experienced development teams not aligned with the business? I’ve seen it all... I’ve learnt, we as engineers can make a huge difference in building successful products. Not just by writing code but by stepping over your own bounds and breaking free from your “software developer” label. In this talk I’ll share my insights, so you can make more impact in building successful products and be a happier developer yourself.

- Stop, Gradle Time!
Another month, another meetup! This time we'll be visiting OpenWeb's office in Nieuwegein (near Utrecht) and learn about your favorite build system: Gradle! TALK 1: Forging a Gradle plugin for Android. Ever wondered how to build a Gradle plugin? Why even consider a Gradle plugin over logic in your build files? What about Android projects and testing the plugin? In this talk we will be casting a basic Gradle plugin, then we grind it to perfection with some more advanced techniques. Let’s get forging! Rolf Smit, Android Developer @ Open Web, currently working for Ahold Delhaize (Albert Heijn app) TALK 2: Fighting incremental times. Let's talk about how to measure your build times, what contributes to the build times, how we can troubleshoot the easy things, how to speed up annotation processing, what is philosophy in the updating build dependencies to the latest and beyond all of these. In this live session, I will take an open-source application and show some simple technics about how to make the incremental build faster.
