Learn Flutter in 2020

Flutter, as we know it today, is an open-source User Interface (UI) framework. It was created by Google in the year 2017. Flutter is a platform to develop cross-platform mobile applications using a programming language called Dart which allows you to write the same codebases throughout. Dart is easier to use if you are already familiar with languages such as Java, JavaScript (JS), and C#. It is a software development kit that helps to make your app development process much easier as well as efficient. This component helps to ease out by providing a compiler, debugger, and a software framework as well. Flutter’s widget library is merely a collection of reusable UI components that includes image, buttons, columns, text inputs, slider, & so on.

Now the question is how did Flutter start trending?

Let’s talk numbers. Over the years there has been a significant increase in the number of smartphone users. About 85 percent of these smartphone users spend most of their time on mobile devices. The fact that users usually prefer mobile apps rather than websites has accounted for 42 percent of all mobile sales for Fortune 500 companies. With all the evidence in favor of building an app, it became important to understand mobile app development to fit in the market niche and marketing goals as well.

Flutter has been around for quite some time now, however, it was only after Flutter Live on December 4, 2018, that it started becoming the talk of the town. As Google announced the first stable release of flutter, it started gaining momentum with new features including support for macOS alpha, add to the app, IOS 13 dark mod, Dart 2.7 and many more.
