Since January I’m experimenting with some private Flutter Apps. Especially I’m investigating how Flutter can be used to control bluetooth devices, develop Desktop Apps, Web Apps, and much more.
For a bluetooth project, I needed to visualise two values in realtime, like on an oscilloscope. I checked the packages on pub.dev and chose the mp_chart package. …
How do your personal values influence your daily work as a developer?
Yesterday I wrote my first post on Medium. It was about which way to implement colors and styles in flutter programming. In programming there are always several ways to implement a solution. Sometimes it’s not easy to select the “right” one for a specific case. Even harder is it define coding standards.
If you have been in a typical scrum team for a while with code reviews and regular developer sessions you know that there can be hot discussions about the “right” solution.
In scrum teams all members…
