Technical – Flutter

Why Flutter ? I compared React and Flutter with Xamarin and found that I liked Flutter for its prospect and close native functionality. Plus it can be on web, mobile and tablet.

With the planet facing a crisis that is growing in severity, the new business sector comprises of social and environmentally conscious businesses that is not all for profit and to gain sustainable income. Examples in Malaysia include PichaEats, TheAsli.Co, neOOne, MasalaOnWheels, Biji-biji Initiative, Me.reka, KNOTs, DemiLaut and a host of others.
