This week in Flutter #38

This week Vandad Nahavandipoor released
35 hours of coding videos
on YouTube. If you want to learn some specific topics from creating developer accounts to coding an entire
Flutter app that connects to Firebase
, to submitting it to the stores, you can jump directly to the
correct video in the playlist and watch it.

It is more a 35 hours long "follow along" coding session, rather than a course, but you can learn so much
from it. Thank you Vandad for sharing it for free!

He decided to keep it free because he knows what it means not to be able to afford
a course.

Are you going to watch it? Let me know by leaving a comment.
