📹 Full Talk Recording Video

My talk lasted for about an hour. Although this was my first talk on Flutter, but it was very pleasant and good experience. The audience was engaging and took a good interest in what I had to say. Here’s the full video of my talk available on YouTube. Sorry I forgot to record my screen while the talk, otherwise you would have seen a better screen for code in the video.

💻 Demo Code

Since this event was for beginner level students, so I only focused on creating the UI screens in Flutter. I showcased a few screens of an app I worked in the past and tried to create as many screens in the talk as I could. Due to time constraints, I could only create 2.

📄 Talk Slides

Although most of the talk was based on the live-coding session and explaining concepts about Flutter there, but I focused on “Why Flutter?” at first to teach students on how Flutter is different from other cross-platform tools and why they should learn it. This was mostly picked from my this recent article on Flutter.

🙏 Special Thanks

At the end, I would like to show my gratitude and thank to Zubair Ansari, whole DSC SMIU team, SMIU faculty, Head of Department of Computer Science, and the students who attended this session and provided me with the feedback.
