Here I will only focus on mobile applications. Then What is Flutter- Why should you learn Flutter in 2023?

In this article, I will briefly introduce Flutter to you and list some companies or apps which use or build applications using it.

Flutter is an Open source toolkit used to build expressively beautiful, natively compiled applications in a single code base. One of its benefits and why I will encourage you to use it in your project is the fact that you can build amazing UI and fancy animations. You also have the possibility to build an app that will run on different operating systems. The factor is commonly known as cross-platform. But apart from this why should you learn Flutter in 2023?

Fast Development with Flutter

Flutter provides a feature known as hot reload which helps you to quickly build and test your UI as well as fix some bugs related to them without having to re-run the whole app. Flutter framework automatically rebuilds the widget tree in order for you to quickly view the effects of any changes.

Native Performance

Flutter’s widgets provide most of the native components such as scrolling, navigation, icons and fonts to provide full native performance on both iOS and Android.

Flutter, a Wonderful Documentation

Even if you are new to mobile development or not flutter offers highly detailed and comprehensive documentation to help developers or none developers acquire the knowledge needed to perform a particular task.

Ready-to-use tutorials

Truly if you are not still satisfied with the documentation you can go ahead and download tutorials on Udacity, Udemy or any other platform which offers complete mastery tools. These tutorials may help you polish up your skills since they usually contain practical projects.

Learn from Developers

Learning does not imply learning on your own. There are many developers with outstanding experience as well as forums such as Stack Overflow or GitHub forums to help. Just be humble to yourself and accept to receive and share knowledge with others.
