My guest today is Leo Farias. Leo is the creator of the wildly popular FVM open-source tool. He is the CEO and co-founder of Concepta Inc and CTO and co-founder of FanHero.

FVM stands for Flutter Version Management. FVM is a simple CLI tool to manage different versions of the Flutter SDK: "FVM helps with the need for consistent app builds by allowing to reference Flutter SDK version used on a per-project basis. It also allows you to have multiple Flutter versions installed to quickly validate and test upcoming Flutter releases with your apps, without waiting for Flutter installation every time."

In my opinion, FVM is an essential tool for every Flutter developer. It facilitates switching Flutter versions quickly, as well as pinning the Flutter version that should be used for a project which is especially helpful when working on teams. We talked about what motivated Leo to build FVM, FVM's functionalities, and the differences between the various installation options for FVM.

Leo also worked on Sidekick, a beautiful desktop app (of course written in Flutter) for managing Flutter versions (you can think of it as a graphical user interface over FVM's core functionalities), explore releases, view popular packages, and more. Sidekick is available on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

At the end of the podcast, we talked about what is next for Leo and what else is he working on.
