I've been studying it for a while now, and I've decided that it will likely be 
my mobile development language.  I love Qt to death for desktop, but I've 
never been able to take to it's declarative approach.  I know others swear by 
it, but it just never fit my brain waves for some reason.

I saw somebody in this thread moan about it being yet another language to 
learn.  Putting aside the fact that a robust developer should know more than 
one, Dart is quite familiar to anybody who has used a modern scripting 
language (e.g., Python).

For me personally, Flutter's "feel" just fits mobile better in my mind than Qt.
