Good in the list
yes, I tried to pick up the good ones!
Whatever path you take, start with the Google-provided well-written up-to-date documentation, namely:
first, install Dart and Flutter as indicated on docs.flutter.dev/get-started/install for your platform
and never read a blog post or watch a video older than six months without seeking the advice of an expert.
