How to pretend to know Flutter

Jerry Wong

Fake it till you make it! Let me, a junior Android developer, teach you how to pretend to know Flutter. Together, we'll follow my onboarding in my new role as a Flutter developer with no prior experience. In each stage, we’ll be highlighting specific Flutter concepts and how they compare to Android so even you can become a Flutter developer in no time.

We will review the three concepts that you will need to learn to demonstrate a working understanding of Flutter- the dart syntax and workflow, user interfaces, and state management. After the presentation is over, we will 1) have an overview of Flutter’s learning curve and enough context to start exploring Flutter; 2) reflect from the perspective of a junior android developer so that we can better improve the way we hire, onboard, and mentor our juniors; and 3) have a good laugh.
