About

You don't need to learn Android/ Java and iOS/ Swift to build real native mobile apps! Flutter—a framework developed by Google—allows you to learn one language (Dart) and build beautiful native mobile apps in no time. Flutter is a SDK that provides the tooling to compile Dart code into native code, and it also gives you a rich set of pre-built and pre-styled UI elements (so called widgets) you can use to compose your user interfaces. Flutter is trending, and gets used for major Google apps such as Adwords. It's now marked as "ready for production" so now is the time to jump in and learn it!

This course will teach you Flutter and Dart from scratch. With Flutter, you'll be able to write code only once and ship your apps both to the Apple AppStore and Google Play. Use Google's Material Design to build beautiful yet fully customizable apps in no time with almost zero effort. You can use the rich widget suite Flutter provides to add common UI elements such as buttons, switches, forms, toolbars, lists, and more—or simply build your own widgets—Flutter makes that a breeze too. You're interested in building real native mobile apps for the two most popular mobile platforms - iOS and Android. You want to explore the full set of features Flutter offers. Don't want to spend hours learning two completely different languages

Maximilian Schwarzmüller

Maximilian Schwarzmüller started out as a web developer at the age of 13 and has never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. Early on, he started creating websites for friends and just for fun as well. This passion has continues and lead to his decision to working as a freelance web developer and consultant. The success and fun he has in this job is immense and really keeps that passion alive. Although he started web development on the backend (PHP with Laravel, NodeJS) he has became more and more of a frontend developer using modern frameworks like React, Angular or VueJS 2 in a lot of projects. He loves both worlds nowadays! As a self-taught developer he had the chance to broaden his horizons by studying Business Administration in which he holds a Master's degree. That enabled him to work in a major strategy consultancy as well as a bank. While learning that he enjoys development more than these fields, the time in this sector greatly improved his overall experience and skills. As a self-taught professional he knows the difficult topics when learning new things or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enable him to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. Whether working as a development instructor or teaching Business Administration he always receives great feedback. He finds the most rewarding experience is to see how people find new, better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of his content.
