Working with Background Services in Flutter


Some applications require that the code is still being executed even when the app is no longer running in the foreground. A good example is an Uber Captain's app that is always listening for nearby ride requests. This talk will demonstrate how the use of Background Services can achieve seamless code execution of a Flutter app in the background. You will learn about a Flutter app's lifecycle, the concept of Services and Isolates and certain plugins that can be used for background code execution in Flutter, and at the end, you will also see a working app executing its code in the background - without any user interaction!
