It’s been since episode #07 that we haven’t talked about Flutter 💙, so today we have Miguel Beltran on stage to talk about one of the most important library for it: Plus Plugins.

Miguel is one of the maintainer of this popular collection of plugins. Plus plugins offer multiplatform capability to access informations such as battery, connectivity, sensors and more across a variety of platforms: Android, iOS, Web, MacOS, Windows & Linux!

In this episode we will talk about the story of this project, how it evolved from Google to Flutter community, and how people can contribute to such a critical piece of the Flutter ecosystem.

Enjoy the show 👨‍🍳
