On this talk we explore three different ways of getting access to dependencies in Flutter, and their tradeoffs. First, we’ll take a look at global state as an easy way of getting the things we need. Then, we’ll talk about constructor dependency injection, what problems it solves, but also which new ones it introduces. Finally, we will learn how to make use of InheritedWidget and how it can help as you scale up your apps. I’ll show a simple app as a example of how these techniques work in practice. Speaker : Andrea Bizzotto Talk #2 : Flutter: Talking to the business GIVEN I am a Flutter Developer AND there are plenty of mobile frameworks WHEN talking to the business about a new project THEN I have convinced them to use Flutter Speaker : Swav Kulinski - GDE on Flutter

  • GDG London April - Kotlin meetup

    The App Business

    This months, we're organising a Kotlin meetup at The App Business office. Schedule : 18:30 - 19:00 Welcome & Networking 19:00 - 19:40 Talk 1 - Kotlin Coroutines: make your world more synchronous 19:40 - 19:50 Break 19:50 - 20:30 Talk 2 - The State of Kotlin 20:30 - 21:30 Networking Kotlin Coroutines: make your world more synchronous In this talk we’ll have an introduction to the coroutines in Kotlin. We’ll see how they work, what we can do with them and how they can help us in making our code look more synchronous and easier to manage. We’ll also briefly discuss about the interaction with existing code and we’ll take a look at some of the “crazy” things that such a powerful tool allows us to do. The talk will be mainly focused on Android, but many of the concepts could probably be useful also in other platforms where Kotlin coroutines are available. Speaker : Andrea Bresolin - Android Engineer at The App Business (TAB) The State of Kotlin Over the last three months I ran a survey of the global Kotlin ecosystem. My goal was to learn how developers use and adopt Kotlin - either in work or side projects, or just for playing around, and what are some of the most popular resources for learning it. The survey was a great success, and gained over 2400 responses in total! The results are meant to become a resource for the Kotlin community. Something we can all look at for interesting insights that will also help drive adoption of Kotlin in our teams and organisations. To give you a taster, here’s a few questions I asked in the survey: - How big is Android as a proportion of all Kotlin developers - Are people happy naming libraries and tooling with K - What are the favourite features of the language - What kind of DSLs are people building with Kotlin and for what use-cases In my talk will answer all these questions, and more. But be warned, some answers might surprise you. Speaker : Zan Markan - Developer Evangelist @Pusher
