A little bit about me…

Since I am 15, IT is a real passion. I started up when computers had very little memory and where each byte (even bit) counted.

Directly after my studies, I had the chance to join a famous IT Services company that gave me the opportunity to work with top performers on projects that required high skills, using novative technologies.

No doubts that I had to learn quickly and a lot.

Throughout my career (far from being over), I have been confronted to lots of challenges, technologies, frameworks and programming languages.

While during the working hours, I practiced most of the computer related positions, from a junior developer to senior architect, test manager or project manager, outside the duty hours, I kept on acquiring new skills and continued to put my hands on practical developments.

Starting with Basic, then switching to Assembly language, Pascal, C, C++, VB.NET, C#, Java, in the years 2003 I decided to start investing much time in many technologies linked to Internet and Web developments. At the same period, I became a great fan of eXtreme Programming and other Agile methodologies. In my country I was one of the very first to introduce to big companies this new way of tackling projects.

Then came NodeJS, No SQL databases (MongoDB and ElasticSearch)… What a great step forward!

A couple of months ago, I finalized a new website and my daughter told me it would be great to also have its mobile app counterpart. I then decided to look for a cross-platform mobile app framework to answer my requirements: one single code which could be deployed on both iOS and Android. Solutions existed: Xamarin (Microsoft), ReactNative (Facebook). I spent some time with them without being fully satisfied.

Lately, I came across articles about Flutter… For me, it was directly clear. No doubt, Flutter is the future of mobile app development!

So why this site?

For so many years I have been looking for answers to issues I faced during my developments and always found people who helped me through their blogs, articles, forums that I have now decided to dedicate this personal website to also provide hints, thoughts, solutions, source codes… mostly related to Flutter, Dart, HTML, CSS.

During my journey through the learning curve of Flutter, each time that I will find solutions, workarounds, hints, useful links… I will strive to share them with you.

Maybe source codes will not always be the best ones but at least, if this can help someone, I will be happy.

This will be my modest contribution…

Hoping you will enjoy it.

Happy coding,

Didier
