About the subject

Flutter, a ground-breaking cross-platform software development kit created by Google, makes it easier than ever to create highly responsive, secure, beautiful native apps for iOS and Android. Flutter embraces modern design patterns, so its applications are loosely-coupled and easy to scale. And because Flutter compiles Dart code to platform-specific programs with no need for a JavaScript bridge, it’s blindingly fast. Flutter’s built-in widgets and rich motion APIs make you productive fast, so your Flutter apps are as responsive as they are gorgeous!

About the video

Flutter in Motion teaches you to build Flutter apps for iOS and Android. Through rich visual content and seasoned developer Scott Cornell’s expert instruction, you’ll learn about widget trees, element trees, reactive programming with Flutter, and the differences between implicit, transition, and explicit animations. You’ll discover key Flutter design patterns and best practices, learn how to handle asynchronous calls, and use ahead-of-time (AOT) and just-in-time (JIT) compilation for customization, general performance, and hot reloading.

You’ll also learn how to take advantage of Flutter’s built-in widgets while you build a fully functioning money management application. Along the way, you’ll gain exposure to Google’s Dart programming language, easy to learn for anyone with experience with a high-level language. And through Manning’s innovative liveVideo content delivery platform, you’ll reap the benefits of mixed-media learning, like increased comprehension and skill-building potential.

Prerequisites

For intermediate developers with experience in a high-level language like Java, JavaScript or C#. You’ll need some prior exposure to object-oriented and asynchronous programming.

What you will learn

  • Reactive programming with Flutter
  • Using AOT and JIT for production and development
  • Widget keys and when to use them
  • Handling asynchronous calls
  • Using implicit, explicit, and transition animations
  • How to handle user input
  • Flutter design patterns, anti-patterns, and best practices
