Talk

My talk title is “Flutter for Java Developers: Mobile, Web, and Desktop with One Codebase?”. I will give it somewhere from October 3 through October 6.

Abstract

Enterprise users are increasingly accessing our Java applications with mobile devices. Native applications often provide a better user experience on mobile devices than web applications. But developing two different applications for iOS and Android is expensive and time-consuming.

Cross-platform frameworks promise salvation: Mobile, web, and desktop front-ends with one codebase. I think Google’s Flutter is the best cross-platform option for Java developers. But can Flutter deliver?

I’ve developed native applications for iOS and Android with Flutter and put them in the app stores. Based on my experience, I describe the advantages of Flutter for Java developers, but also typical problems and their solutions. With an example application, I demonstrate how mobile, web, and desktop front-ends can succeed with one codebase—and what the limitations are.

Why Should You Listen To Me?

I’ve been a Java developer for 23 years. I’m a Java news reporter for InfoQ, so I know what’s going on in the Java world. I’m neither affiliated with the projects I’m discussing nor selling books or training courses.

I share industry analysis and my project experiences to give you options for your next project. But in the end, you decide!
