Learning Flutter - Part 1 - Gathering Learning Resources

In my previous post I outlined my plan to learn Flutter (and Dart).

In preparing to get started, I've been looking into various learning resources.

The Flutter Website is a great place to start. The documentation if pretty good and there is both a language tour and a style guide that are useful to peruse:
- Language Tour:
- Dart Style Guide:
- Flutter Install Guide for Mac:

Google also has some Code Labs to help learn Flutter - I've not tried these but have taken a quick look and may do so as I start my hands-on learning:
Google Code Labs:

Youtube also has some decent Flutter materials. I'm well into the first one and may look through the other ones. As is my habit, I've been watching on the train to work:
- Flutter Full Tutorial for Beginners ( and his website
- 44 Short Flutter Videos:
- 35 Short Flutter Tutorial Videos:
- Dart Programming Tutorial (1 hr 40 min):
- Crash Course on Flutter (5 hrs 44 min start of an Academind course):

There are a few Medium pages with text intros/posts/articles that seem worthwhile along with some Example Sites with working code. I've only taken a brief look but these look like very useful resources for learning more advanced concepts and understanding what Flutter can do
- GetHub Awesome Flutter examples:
- "Flutter Awesome" Website:
- List of apps built in Flutter: 
- Medium Flutter Landing Page
- Another Medium Flutter Landing Page

Rounding out the learning materials are a Flutter Book (with Kindle download available free) and a Tutorials Site. I've downloaded the book but have not started reading it. I've looked at some of the tutorials briefly but have not tried any of them.
- Flutter Succinctly Book:
- Flutter Tutorials Handbook (several small tutorials):

My likely approach will be to build and learn in parallel. What I mean by that is that I'll continue to tackle the above in parallel with starting into actually building an app. I'll definitely go down some blind alleys and develop some code that's not great but by building in parallel I'll be able to apply learnings immediately which will be better both for my learning and for my building. 

If there are any great Flutter (or Dart) resources you think I've missed in the list above please let me know. Now onto some more Flutter learning!
