Educative is a learning platform that focuses on written courses, rather than the usual video courses of other platforms. Not everybody like to watch a video to learn something new. Some people prefer to read explanations and observe what they are learning in a hands-on coding environment, where they can change the code and see what happens.
Educative is ideal for such an approach. Lessons consist of theory and live code you can run directly from the website and modify directly.
Some time ago a representative from Educative contacted me. They were adding courses about Flutter and they wanted to know if I was available to create a course for them. I accepted and worked on the side for some months to create Responsive and Adaptive UI in Flutter.
I am happy to announce that it is out now!
The course is aimed to Flutter developers who created mobile apps and are curious about creating apps for larger screens, like desktop or web apps.
Let me know if you have any questions about the course. I would be glad to give you all the information you need.

Why would you, as a Flutter developer, use a no-code tool to build your app? If you are starting a new business, of which the app is only a part, it makes sense to take advantage of tools that can help you build your business faster. But do not just trust me, read what Stephan has to say on the argument.

While working on your Flutter app, you do not need to have all the localized text from the beginning, you can use pseudo localization to translate existing strings into pseudo languages to see how they fit on your screen. Have a look at the article, if you are curious about how this works.
Operator Frog is an experiment meant to explore how Dart operators can be overridden to obtain a different API for HTTP communication. You probably should not start using it, as the author says. But even though the author claims the code is not readable, I find it quite pleasant

For hacktoberfest, Invertase announced special
swag for participants within the Flutter community. The results are in.
The difference in the number of pull requests between the top two repositories
and the third one is quite interesting. I understand it for
because it groups several projects. But
flame really did well.
Congratulations to the participants and maintainers!

The Advent of Code is a yearly event that spans multiple days, following the Advent calendar. Developers from all over the world compete to solve small programming puzzles in the programming language of their choice. You can join the Dart private leaderboard to compete with other developers using Dart.

Explore code sharing between client and server and connect to a backend Postgres database. I have to say I did not watch this video. Yet. But I am interested in the format: a live-streaming coding session. Do you know any Flutter developer who streams while they code?
That’s it for this week.
