Flutter as seen by world-class experts

Will Google kill Flutter is a timeless question. I don’t think it will ever go away. What does Flutter mean to Google? (...) By a solid margin, Flutter saves Google more headcount than even the teams of Dart and Flutter. And they aren't small. Flutter doesn’t cost Google money to build because of Google’s own internal usage of Flutter.

Craig
LabenzDeveloper Relations EngineerGoogle

Technically there is very little that you can’t do with Flutter. (...) But the branding is still a problem. So, if you try to convince somebody who has been building Android apps for half of his life to now start to learn Dart, no matter how natively you compile it or how good those developer tools are, it is very hard to convince them to try something new. The same goes for trying to convince iOS developers to adopt Flutter.

I personally love the web. I think back to a kind of previous memory in my career, the idea that I have an office suite just in my browser. I don't think about installing my mail app or my word app or my whatever app and then installing service packet service packages but just go to URL. I think in terms of my daily productivity, maybe aside from dev tools or maybe a couple of utilities, everything I do productivity-wise, is done on the web.

I instantly fell in love with Dart. It's a great language and has a bigger potential than just being a language for Flutter. Because it's a great language, it has many modern features like type safety, null safety, and really nice closures. (...) Also, I think more Flutter developers should look into the backend side of Dart because it's really pleasant to work with.

Viktor LidholtFounderServerpod

Flutter, in every sense, from the language, the framework, and the ecosystem, is all open source. (...) I try to work with people in the ecosystem, and it is how you make it easier and more seamless for people to collaborate. Because it's not necessarily about everybody building their own package. It's how we can collaborate on building out different packages, whether that be cross platforms, whether that be features, you name it.

Ander DoboProduct ManagerGoogle

One of the things that has gone on in the ten years since we started Flutter is that Flutter has grown inside the Google ecosystem to solve Google problems. And that's not bad. (...) but it means that there are a lot of sort of little missing pieces that make it difficult for random businesses to be successful in adopting Flutter.
