Want to learn to build beautiful Flutter apps that users can navigate through easily, fetching data along the way? Join this two-day hands-on workshop with Brian Egan! Mobile development is a difficult task these days. Not only do you need to write beautiful, high performance apps that work on low-powered devices with intermittent connectivity, you need to write your apps twice! Once for iOS and again for Android.

Are you passionate about clean code and want to learn how to implement advanced architectures in Android applications? Join Jorge Ortiz Fuentes for this three-day course and follow an iterative and constructive path to build the greatest and most complex applications while keeping your code reusable, maintainable, testable, and decoupled.

This is a hands-on workshop, where you will write code in your platform, using a trusted codebase and with support and guidance from the instructor. Students will have access to a Git code repository so that they can flexibly review parts of the course as they learn.

22nd - 23rd October 2019

In this workshop David Denton and Ivan Sanchez will show you the language's powerful, developer-friendly features, how they relate to what you know already, and to safely and incrementally migrate them existing Java codebases to Kotlin.
