The Flutter Puzzle Hack asked participants to push their creativity to its limits by reimagining a classic slide puzzle. It’s safe to say the submissions blew the judges away!

Over 5,500 developers representing 120+ countries, and a range of experience levels participated in the Flutter Puzzle Hack. Before sharing the category winners, we want to celebrate everyone who participated in the challenge. Yet again the Flutter community came together to build something special. We gathered for talks covering animations, Firebase hosting, and slide puzzle basics. And then it was great to see Flutter developers building an incredible array of slide puzzles, sharing highlights along the way, and voting for your favorites. Thank you all!

It’s amazing to be part of such a passionate and creative community. Who knew there were so many different ways to build a simple slide puzzle game?? 🤷‍♂️

Without further ado… it’s time for the winners!
