How’s your introduction to Flutter coming along? If this is your first foray into any sort of development, then it’s going to be quite overwhelming. You’re learning a lot of concepts at once such as the language, the framework, the tooling - all at once. If you are coming from a development background, you may find the conventions a little strange. The best thing to do in both cases is to embrace the uncertainty. That is, embrace the beginner mind and understand that this moment is but a temporary one.

I say this because things are going to get interesting in this part.

First, you’ll learn how to set the orientation of a device.

Then you’ll layout some more widgets.

After which, you’ll add a slider to the app.

You’ll then play around with padding and spacing at which point,

you’ll learn how to manage widget state.

Finally, we’ll conclude this part with a discussion about strings.

So there’s a lot to do so let’s get to work.
