The adoption of Flutter in The Netherlands
In December 2018 Flutter 1.0 was announced and ready for production. Early 2020 Albert Heijn took Flutter to the test as a potential technology to create the new AH Compact app. When our research was done and all the questions were answered we were very positive about Flutter and made the decision to add Flutter to our technology stack. Why did we do this? What makes companies like Albert Heijn choose a relative new technology like Flutter and not stick to existing further evolved technologies?
In this talk I want to talk about the adoption of new technologies in general and how Flutter adoption follows this model on a global level. I will also talk about the current adoption of Flutter in The Netherlands. Which companies are betting on Flutter and why? Lastly I will zoom into how we use Flutter in our own organization and where it makes most sense in using it as a potential technology for user experience needs in the future.
