tldr: There is a side project I’d like to build, and I’m wondering if Dart & Flutter is the way to go for the app development.
I’m a backend dev, so I’m not worried about the db or api. But, I have very little experience with mobile, and… not to be too harsh… but I’m curious if it’s worth it to learn Dart & Flutter for the apps.
Just so it’s clear, I don’t care what the “hottest” framework or language is. I’m more concerned about building something for fun, and getting valuable experience at the same time. I respect all the work many people have put into Dart and Flutter, and I’m impressed by what it can do. That being said, if Dart is something that won’t be around after a few years, then I’d rather not spend my time using it for this project, and do it with different technology / do a different project.
I don’t know much about the language or the decisions being made by Google in terms of the project, so I would appreciate your thoughts. I’ve only ever made two apps with Dart & Flutter.
