Moin, my name is Marc Gerken from Bremen, Germany and I would like to share my love for Flutter with you! 🤓 ❤️
I have always had the urge to create things. Since I’m all thumbs, I am unable to properly do that in the real world. I guess that’s why software development has become a passion of mine.
During my studies of computer science in Bremen, I mainly came into contact with the Java world, which was a pleasant introduction into the area of OOP. After that, I have worked some time in the web sector, developing a not so close relationship to the then rather immature language PHP.
During my private projects I tried out many languages, frameworks, libraries and tools and eventually ended up in the app development business. I have quickly come to the realization that the way I had to deal with UI in the iOS environment (except for SwiftUI) was pretty cumbersome and that it is quite exhausting to take care of two code bases for a single project.
Flutter solves most of the problems I was struggling with. That’s probably why I am so enthusiastic about it and started writing this blog.
Why blog about it?
Ever since I started using Flutter, I have been amazed at how well it’s documented by Google.
Nevertheless, during the development of my first apps, there were moments when I had to search the web for solutions. Every time I had to google a little longer to find a solution or I found that the results on StackOverflow were not detailed enough, I took a note. I said to myself, I would create a blog that would collect all these solutions so that everyone can profit from my insights.
