The Flutter Bi-Weekly - Issue #1
By Neevash Ramdial (Nash) • Issue #1 • View online

Welcome to the first edition of The Flutter Bi-Weekly! 🥳
You might be wondering, why another developer newsletter? 
Great question! The goal of Flutter Bi-Weekly is to curate the best of Flutter in a simple and easily digestible format. Content will be sourced from around the community and focus on a few key areas:
  1. Blogs ✍️
  2. Videos 🎥
  3. Noteworthy Community Moments 💫
  4. Tweet of the Week 🥇
  5. Hiring 👩‍💻🧑‍💻
As a developer, your time is precious, code needs review, coffee needs brewing, and emails need deleting 🙈. 
Flutter Bi-Weekly will aim to add value to your day without feeling spammy or overwhelming, hence the bi-weekly format.
Quality > Quantity 😎 
Blogs ✍️

Tweet of the Week 🥇

We’re improving how #Flutter Web apps render into a page (so eventually they don’t take over the whole “body” tag).

Design docs here:

* https://t.co/bNk0XOImfy (whole project, WIP)
* https://t.co/p7Xk9B1pq5 (first bit)

Comments & RTs welcome! (in docs and Discord) #flutterdev

I think this counts as running #FlutterDev in VR :'). Considering that the #FlameEngine website is a Flutter web app.

So I am technically the first person(to my knowledge) that ran a #Flutter app in VR.

Now if only we could make it fully native! https://t.co/I3ouGKk2Ed
