How to get an edge in the Canadian job market

For new immigrants, finding a good software development job in Canada can be a challenge. To prepare for this challenge, experts advise to learn skills that are in demand in Canada.

The job outlook in Canada for software developers is good. However, as all software developers are aware of, you have to keep up to date with the latest technologies in order to get that dream software development job in Canada. And one of the most interesting new platforms in software development is Flutter.

Flutter

Google developed Flutter as a UI toolkit to help software developers use only one language to build apps on multiple platforms. In order to develop Flutter apps, you have to use Dart as the programming language. Flutter is a relatively new tool. Google officially released version 1.0 in December 2018.

One of the main advantages to using Flutter over other cross-platform technologies, is that it compiles to native code (as opposed to JavaScript in some other platforms for example).

Software Development Jobs in Canada

And since most (if not all) companies focus on profits and cutting down costs, it makes more sense for a company to hire one developer to create both iOS and Android applications than to hire one developer for each platform. I believe that this make Flutter very attractive for a software developer to get that cream job in Canada.

One Platform For All

Personally, I have been using Flutter in all of my mobile projects. In total, I have 7 applications deployed to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. And the best part of this, is that both the iOS and Android apps were built from the same source code.

To add more points in favour of using Flutter, since May 2019 you can develop web applications as well! So, with one source code, you can create an application for iOS, Android and the Web. How cool is that!
