Flutter is a mobile app SDK, complete with framework, widgets, and tools, that gives developers an easy and productive way to build and deploy beautiful mobile apps on both Android and iOS.
What does Flutter do?
For users, Flutter makes beautiful app UIs come to life.
For developers, Flutter lowers the bar to entry for building mobile apps. It speeds up development of mobile apps and reduces the cost and complexity of app production across iOS and Android.
For designers, Flutter helps deliver the original design vision, without loss of fidelity or compromises. It also acts as a productive prototyping tool.
Who is Flutter for?
Flutter is for developers that want a faster way to build beautiful mobile apps, or a way to reach more users with a single investment.
Flutter is also for engineering managers that need to lead mobile development teams. Flutter allows eng managers to create a single mobile app dev team, unifying their development investments to ship more features faster, ship the same feature set to iOS and Android at the same time, and lower maintenance costs.
While not the initial target audience, Flutter is also for designers that want their original design visions delivered consistently, with high fidelity, to all users on mobile.
Fundamentally, Flutter is for users that want beautiful apps, with delightful motion and animation, and UIs with character and an identity all their own.
How experienced of a programmer/developer do I have to be to use Flutter?
Flutter is approachable to programmers familiar with object-oriented concepts (classes, methods, variables, etc) and imperative programming concepts (loops, conditionals, etc).
No prior mobile experience is required in order to learn and use Flutter.
Flutter have seen people with very little programming experience learn and use Flutter for prototyping and app development.
