About Flutter

Flutter is a mobile sdk that, at its core, is fundamentally about empowering everyone to build beautiful mobile apps. Whether you come from the world of web development or native mobile development, Flutter makes it easy to create mobile apps in a familiar, simplified way -- without ever giving up control to the framework.

Flutter is about the easiest thing to pick up as your first framework or coming from any other background. In fact, that’s how I’ve found myself here, writing this post. I had to learn Flutter because of my job, and I loved it from the moment I started. I effectively became a mobile developer overnight, because Flutter felt so familiar to my web development background. (In fact, the Flutter team has openly stated being influenced by ReactJS.)

Flutter isn’t only about being easy, though. It’s also about control, and that’s where ‘interesting’ turns into ‘exciting’. You can create exceptional mobile apps with Flutter with a pretty shallow knowledge of the framework. But you can also create incredible and unique features, if you so choose, because Flutter exposes everything to the developer.
