2016-05-06 18:08 UTC Flutter's mahogany staircase
For today's update, I give you: a video about Flutter!
We've started recording the occasional tech talk about Flutter's technology stack. We're more or less covering topics at random; in this talk I mostly try to answer the frequently asked question "Why does StatelessWidget have a build function on its widget while StatefulWidget has its build function on its State". Adam has a talk prepared where he goes through and explains our rendering pipeline, which hopefully I'll be able to share with you in a few weeks. If there's specific topics you think would benefit from this kind of approach, please don't hesitate to leave a comment.
I'm hoping to turn this talk into a document at some point. I have the speakers notes, which are more or less what I said in the video, it's just a matter of getting the time to do it.
