Build the most beautiful puzzle ever, with Flutter!

 

Ready to brush off the holiday cobwebs and try your hand at a fun coding project that will test your knowledge of Flutter? We’re excited to announce the Flutter Puzzle Hack, our latest challenge to see what you can do with Flutter and a chance to win one of over $50,000 worth of prizes. We’re asking you to develop the most creative yet solvable slide puzzle you can imagine, targeting Flutter on the web. Whether you create a new design, rebuild the puzzle from scratch, or integrate packages in new, interesting ways, we want to see just how far you can push your imagination.

 

To get you started, we’ve written sample code that provides a straightforward implementation  of the puzzle logic. We’ve also curated loads of other documentation and resources to help you build a compelling submission, so whether you’re an experienced Flutter developer, or are just joining the Flutter community after reading Flutter Apprentice, there is something here for you!

 

Be sure to share your solutions on Twitter and tag us using the hashtag, #flutterpuzzlehack for a chance to be featured on @FlutterDev!
