Cross - Platform Mobile App Development with Flutter

Flutter is an open-source mobile application development framework created by Google. It is used to develop applications for Android and iOS..

Why learn Flutter?

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 providing 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) which you can use to compose your user interfaces.

Flutter is extremely trending and gets used for major Google apps like their Adwords app - it's now marked as "ready for production", hence now is the time to jump in and learn it!

This course will teach Flutter & Dart from scratch, NO prior knowledge of either of the two is required! And you certainly don't need any Android or iOS development experience since the whole idea behind Flutter is to only learn one language.

You'll learn Flutter not only in theory but we'll build a complete, realistic app throughout this course. This app will feature both all the core basics as well as advanced features like using Google Maps, the device camera, adding animations and more!

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 like buttons, switches, forms, toolbars, lists and more - or you simply build your own widgets - Flutter makes that a breeze, too.

Flutter is used by Google and developers and organizations around the world to deliver beautiful native apps on iOS and Android.

Can you lookup the difference between DNA and RNA in less than one minute on the Internet? Did you or are you going to read this page until the end? Are you willing to spend at least 2 hours a day looking at a mostly black & white screen and write 100s of lines of code? Do you have the 3 Ps: Passion, Patience, and Perseverance? If you answered yes to all of those questions then YES!! you can learn Flutter and it will be a piece of cake for you.

This course is designed to be practical and project-based. It is therefore ideal for Computer Science students who understand the concepts and fundamentals of computer programming but want to gain practical and real experience and learn the industry standards and approaches to Mobile App Development.

  • Beginner and experienced developers who are interested in diving into mobile app development using one language for both platforms
  • Experienced iOS or Android developers who want to build cross-platform (iOS + Android) apps with one single programming language
  • Ability to read in English

  • Ability to dedicate 1.5 to 2 hours daily

  • Basic programming language will help but is not a must-have

  • You can use either Windows, macOS or Linux for Android app development - iOS apps can only be built on macOS though

  • NO prior iOS or Android development experience is required

  • NO prior Flutter or Dart experience is required - this course starts at zero!

At Milestone Institute we believe that the best way to learn programming is by doing. Therefore, there will be practical coding sessions in almost every class, coding assignments, projects, code reading assignments, debugging and challenge assignments and research and reading assignments. In addition to covering the content of the subject course students will learn about industry approaches and use state of the art tools and technologies.

The duration of this course is two and half months. There are three sessions weekly. Each session is 1.5 hour long.

Students: $80

Non-students: $100

Note: the above fee is for the whole duration of the course and not monthly.

By the end of this course students should learn:

  • Build engaging native mobile apps for both Android and iOS
  • Use features like Google Maps, the device camera, authentication and much more!
  • Learn all the basics and advanced features which you find in no other course
