why should you learn Flutter?

If you are a fan of mobile app development then you will definitely be thrilled by this blog.

So, why should you learn Flutter?

First of all, its simplicity may be a major plus. If you’ve done native mobile app development with Java or Objective-C, you’ll know it’s tough to develop native applications with either. This is the first reason alternative languages like Kotlin and Swift were created, being easier to develop with.

One of the specialties of flutter is that it goes a step further and reduces the complexity of building native mobile apps even more. It overall enhances developer productivity by allowing quick compilation of code. Changes to the code are often seen in real-time with a quick compilation mechanism called Hot Reload. Significant app changes still require the app to reload, but interface design changes are often seen as they modify in real-time.

Due to this, Flutter is a perfect framework for starting a replacement project. If you're thinking of building a minimal viable product (MVP), Flutter may be a great choice. It’s very cost-effective to develop a mobile app with Flutter because you don’t need to create and maintain two mobile app code bases, one for Android and another for iOS.

Furthermore, Flutter is extremely fast and high-performing. One will not be able to notice any difference performance-wise from a native app written in Java or Objective-C. An amazing feature about Flutter is that it comes with great, well-documented widgets out of the box.

Also, Flutter comes with great tooling support so you're ready to use either Android Studio or Visual Studio Code.

Taking Flutter cross-platform

Flutter started as a mobile development framework, and it's become what Google calls a canvas for creative exploration. This is possible because of the Dart programing language, which has been optimized for building user interfaces.

Beyond Android and iOS, Flutter provides support for web development through a code-compatible version that will render HTML CSS and JavaScript. This means that existing Flutter code is often compiled to run embedded within the browser without the necessity to use a browser plugin.

Flutter also offers desktop support. As of the time of writing, Flutter code is often compiled to a native macOS desktop app.


The Flutter community

One of the great things about Flutter, beyond its cross-platform support, is its growing community—developers passionate about the platform who contribute tutorials, learning videos, demonstrations, user interface components, images, maps, charts, storage, templates, and so on.

The Flutter (Dart) repository on GitHub contains a wealth of resources that will be employed by both Flutter enthusiasts and experienced developers to reinforce their applications.

Some of the Flutter repositories are:

  1. Awesome Flutter
  2. Flutter Catalog
  3. Flutter Example Apps
  4. Flutter Samples
  5. Flutter Examples

All these repositories are hosted on GitHub. They’re easy to seek out by doing an easy search on the Dart trending repos.

Looking ahead

In 2021, Flutter adoption is going to explode, and a lot of companies are going to require developers with this expertise, so learning Flutter is a great decision to strengthen your career and future employment possibilities.

If you're an enthusiast, learning Flutterby experimenting with it's also an excellent choice, as working with it causes you to feel productive and you’ll even be ready to see the results of your work fast.

If you’d wish to learn more about Flutter and the way to urge started, the succinctly series has you covered with Flutter Succinctly. Beyond this, Sync fusion features a collection of wonderful Flutter widgets which will enable you to make astonishing apps with Flutter, so check them out.

If you come from a C#, Java, or JavaScript background, you’ll find very familiar concepts and constructs within Dart that will make your development experience familiar and pleasant.
