See how to get set up with the Flutter development tools, including the Flutter and Dart SDKs, Android Studio, and Visual Studio Code on Windows.

In this first challenge of the course, you’ll make a development plan for the app that you will make.

Create a Flutter project from scratch and learn about all the various aspects of it.

In this episode, you’ll be introduced to the Widget – your building block for creating Flutter apps.
Congratulations on getting started with Flutter! Review what you accomplished and learn what you’ll be doing next.
2. Understand Flutter Widgets

Learn about how Flutter uses widgets to create app behaviour and user interfaces. After which, you’ll get an overview of this part.

In this episode, you’ll learn how Flutter uses widgets throughout its framework build your interface and react to user behaviour.

Now that you have an idea of how widgets function, we’ll build our game interface using several of the Flutter’s provided widgets.

Learn the basics of object-oriented programming to better understand the Dart code you’ll be working with in the course

Add a TextButton widget to the app and then add some Dart code that prints a message to the console.

Understand the difference between Stateless and Stateful Widgets, which help keep your UI performant and in-sync with the state of your app data

See Flutter’s Hot Reload in action, and learn how to solve problems beginners frequently run into, such as what to do when your code has an error.

You’ve made a great start! Let’s review where you are with the app to-do list, and discuss what’s next.
