This week in Flutter #135: Flutter conferences in Europe


In the last couple of days, Flutter Heroes took place in Turin, Italy. You can watch the talks from last year on the Flutter Heroes YouTube channel. Seeing how long it took to publish the videos, I do not expect the new ones to be available soon. If you missed it, but you would like to attend a Flutter event, you can check the Flutter Global Summit website. The conference will take place online in a few days. Other upcoming events in Europe are: Flutter Connection, in Paris, Full Stack Flutter, online, Fluttercon in Berlin, and Flutter & Friends in Stockholm.

Stay up to date with the latest Flutter events on Flutter Conferences.

An interactive study of common retry methods

by Sam Rose

When the server answers with a 5xx error, what should you do? Retry the request, of course. But how? In this post, Sam explores different methods of retrying requests, “… demonstrating why some common approaches are dangerous and ultimately ending up at what the best practice is. At the end of this post you will have a solid understanding of what makes safe retry behaviour, and a vivid understanding of what doesn’t.”

That’s it for this week.
