Yeah, I think a crucial thing Flutter needs to growth is people's predisposition to learn Dart!.

Which I really don't get. Why would one only learn JS (for example) and do EVERYTHING with it? What's so wrong about picking up a new language? In my opinion, if you are in tech, learning new things and staying on top of the developments is not a luxury but a necessity.

I think the only problem I could found in and many developers talked about is their fear to the Google's tendency to kill projects haha.

I wonder if this would still apply here, since Flutter is open source and all... ๐Ÿค”

You definitely don't want to learn a entirely new language (which is very time-consuming)

Well people don't learn Swift or Java because the learning curve is too steep. So, if anything, cross platform solutions are waaay easier to pick up than native development! ๐Ÿ˜œ I really don't feel like Dart is a difficult programming language to learn (doesn't take much time given that you already have programming experience), but that's me. Others may just find it too hard. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Let us see where Flutter goes. In the meantime I'll enjoy being an early adopter! ๐Ÿ˜
