Flutter is an open-source UI toolkit for mobile developers, so they can use it to build native-looking Android and iOS applications from the same code base for both platforms. Flutter is also working to make Flutter apps for Web, PWA (progressive Web-App) and Desktop platform (Windows,macOS,Linux).
Flutter was officially released in December 2018. Since then, it has gone a much stronger flutter community.
There has been much increase in flutter developers, flutter packages, youtube tutorials, blogs, flutter examples apps, official and private events, and more. Flutter is now on top software repos based and trending on GitHub.
What is Flutter? this question comes to many new developer’s mind.
Flutter means flying wings quickly, and lightly but obviously, this doesn’t apply in our SDK.
So Flutter was one of the companies that were acquired by Google for around $40 million. That company was based on providing gesture detection and recognition from a standard webcam. But later when the Flutter was going to release in alpha version for developer it’s name was Sky, but since Google already owned Flutter name, so they rename it to Flutter.
Where Flutter is used?
Flutter is used in many startup companies nowadays, and even some MNCs are also adopting Flutter as a mobile development framework. Many top famous companies are using their apps in Flutter. Some of them here are
Abbey Road Studios
and many more other apps. Mobile development companies also adopted Flutter as a service for their clients. Even I was one of them who developed flutter apps as a freelancer and later as an IT company for mobile apps.
How Flutter works?
Before I tell you how Flutter works let me tell you first how other Framework works that existed before Flutter to make apps for Android and IOS.
- React-Native that uses its OEM widgets that uses native components of that platform.
- Flutter does it first provide a blank canvas where, you can draw anything you want with the help of widgets like AppBar, TextField, Scaffold, RaisedButton, and many more widgets that help you to make beautiful and varieties of UI animations without any restriction.

So I started working in Flutter around start of 2018 and within 3 months, I was getting an offer for a flutter developer job. Also, since at that time in Gurgaon,India region, there were not many flutter developers available. So due to an increase in demand, I got higher pay than expected 🤑 , and since then, my career is going quite good 😀 .I changed few companies, and I’m quite happy that I switch to flutter, and that’s what I want for you also.
