Posted February 1, 2022 by Handi Deyana ‐ 3 min read
There were problems when developing mobile app, especially in MNC like Human Resource, IOS, and Features Gap. to solve that we at mobile MNC Innovation trying to adopt new technology called flutter
What is Flutter
Flutter is an open source framework by Google for building beautiful, natively compiled, multi-platform applications from a single codebase. flutter UI use Declarative style, so developers just specifies what is to be done rather than how to do it. Flutter has hot reload feature helps you quickly and easily experiment, build UIs, add features, and fix bugs. To find out about flutter, click here
Adopting new tech
In this last 2 years we tried to adapt this new technology, here the timeline
Fast and developer
With fastest about 1.5 month app can be delivered and deploy. But there are two apps that develop until now, it show that development are collective work and team work. it depend on product, team and developer.
Number of developers when product are initiate untill first release.
Number of developers now, 1/3 mean one person in charge for 3 projects.
How about the quality app? since quality are measured by many things. author pick app engagement, and crash for measureable metric.
Average engagement, data taken from Google analytic in last 30 days.
Data taken from Google Playstore and Apple Playstore in last 30 days.
What is feature gap, its different feature between android and ios, some feature are available in android but ios. Since flutter are multiplatform there is 0 Feature gap. Same experience, same launch time, same developer, more productive.
No! 87% of developers are have less than one year experience using flutter.
How Mobile MNC innovation help ?
Before developers develop app, we trained the developers from basic to intimidiate courses.
Here some video what we did.
How long it took?
A month. it faster compare to 3 month native development.
Is it hard to hire flutter developer?
Nope! Compare to hire android and ios developer, they are ‘rare’ in job market today. And flutter dev can from any background fresh graduate, web developer, android developer, ios developer.
After training, in project we use MNC Innovation Flutter standard for
- Flattening learning curve
- Standardize and unified way of code
- Maintainable project
You can find out about standard, and data about it here
Within 2 years we solve the problems of Human Resource, IOS, and Features Gap. also we develop fast with help of flutter and in most case lean-er.
Desktop app are tool to use for pro to solve theire problem like trading app, music editor app etc. we will continue to use flutter and explore desktop evironment since flutter desktop evironment now production ready.
Currently we are experimenting with low code in mobile development, stay tune for next update
