About the Book

To be a Better Flutter Developer?

Choice is yours!

You can enhance your development skill and as well as make your Flutter app more performant in two ways.

On the other hand, to make your app more performant you should follow a few rules. And repeat them again and again.

This book will teach you both.

At the first place, we'll learn core conceptions. With the help of these core conceptions, you'll learn the abstraction behind the concrete applications that you're going to build.
