About Fragments Ahmedabad: State of Platforms

The Ahmedabad edition of Fragments Conference is a technical, deep-dive conference, discussing:

  1. React: where Vipul AM, director at Big Binary, elaborates on tooling, resources and how to get started with React: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/state-of-react-BDg5te9DaeahZN9kVaahRV

  2. React Native: working with the React Native team at Facebook in San Francisco, Parashuram explains how you can build high quality applications with React Native: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/building-high-quality-mobile-apps-with-react-nativ-T4xVLyEQFFGKzgvNsdRuta

  3. Flutter: Pooja Bhaumik explains the ease of development with Flutter in terms of reduced development times, ease of learning, and other technical features which make Flutter an attractive platform: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/flutter-do-more-with-less-code-jbAn8PKhyFgna44bvJ8fHf

  4. Comparisons of the above platforms with Kotlin and NativeScript: Arnav Gupta, known for his active involvement with the Android community, demonstrates the pros and cons of different platforms by showing how he built an app using Kotlin, Flutter and NativeScript: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/what-i-learnt-by-building-the-exact-same-app-in-ko-NuZgd4bLfKkcck2yHEGRmg

While platforms have brought in frameworks and ease of development, at the heart of a good mobile app underlies sound engineering. One such practice is that of end-to-end testing. Preeti Wadhwani argues about the importance of E2E testing, in her talk at the conference: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/meet-my-new-friend-testing-Y5FuAn6jCmXDdyL7o72LtM

We have organized a flash talks session for audience to showcase their open source work, and contribute to the above discussions. See the full conference schedule here: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/schedule

Workshops and BOF sessions:

Conferences are as much about interactions and sharing of experiences, as they are about learning. Post-lunch, we have two tracks at Fragments Ahmedabad edition:

  1. A hands-on tutorial on React: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/react-beginners-workshop-XgmZCjfvVLFYBAYotH8jeE

  2. Birds of Feather (BOF) sessions, where interested members of the audience can join discussions on React Native, Flutter and NativeScript. See the schedule for more details: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/schedule

Who should attend?

  1. Mobile developers working across platforms.
  2. Co-founders and product managers who are evaluating platforms for business and customer use cases.

Conference date: 9 March 2019.

Venue: DevX Accelerator, C-201, 2nd Floor, The First, Vastrapur, Ahmedabad.

What I learnt by building the exact same app in Kotlin (Native Android), Nativescript and Flutter

Submitted Feb 5, 2019

This will go through the journey of building a blogging app (Medium clone) using Kotlin, Nativescript and Flutter and discuss the differences in developer and user experience for the apps built using all these platforms.

Outline

So I took the famous realworld.io project (which is a clone of Medium) and implemented it in Kotlin for native Android, and then using Nativescript-Vue and finally in Flutter.
Although separate platforms, the end result looks identical to the end user.

We will compare a bunch of things across these three platforms -

  1. Developer Experience
  2. Performance (out of the box)
  3. Performance optimisation learning curve
  4. Memory/CPU/App size differences
  5. Lines of Code
  6. Perceptible jank, smoothness
  7. Constraints and limitations of each framework

Requirements

  • Knowledge of Java/Kotlin for Android development
  • Some prior experience with Javascript (to catch the Nativescript parts quickly)
  • An open mind
