Flutter and Rails from Scratch

I’m primarily a backend, cloud developer, so building frontend clients wigs me out. So in the spirit of learning, I have mustered enough fearlessness and courage to try and build an app with a brand new client framework that I hadn’t used before

For a while I’ve wanted to build something with flutter - especially with flutter web being released – you can build a web, iOS, and Android app all in one go!
