    In June we have a talk about App development workflows, for web developers, using Flutter and Dart. Flutter is an open-source mobile application development framework created by Google. It is used to develop applications for Android and iOS. Dart is a client-optimized programming language for fast apps on multiple platforms. It is developed by Google and is used to build mobile, desktop, backend and web applications. Dart is an object-oriented, class defined, garbage-collected language using a C-style syntax.

    The group is diverse, welcoming, sociable, relaxed, irreverent, informative and fun.

  • Some say that he can answer any question before it’s even been asked it, and that he has already written the next 5 version of C# in Depth, the books are apparently locked in a Redmond vault and will be used to create the official specifications. All I know, is that he’ll be in Aberdeen on 2nd October and you’ll not want to miss this Meetup!

    That’s right we have Jon Skeet coming to Aberdeen on Wednesday 2nd October to talk, in depth, about C#8! And with .NET Core 3.0 launching just days before at .NET Conf, the 3 day virtual event co-organised by the .NET community and Microsoft, there will be plenty to talk about at this meetup so you'll hopefully be able to join us.

    Also thanks to our sponsor, Brightree, you can grab a drink and few slices of pizza so make sure you turn up on time, and of course if you have any special dietary requirements please send me a message and let me know.
