Freelance Flutter Developer and Trainer - Android | IOS | Web | Firebase

I am an experienced Flutter developer as well as trainer. I conduct workshops mostly offline where I am building a community of flutter enthusiast. I am well versed in production level application and how to write codes efficiently. I just love the way Flutter makes it easy to develop cross platform applications within a short time interval. It is the future of Application Development. 

I was disappointed by the way most of the offline academies teach programming. So I learned on my own and now started conducting Flutter Workshops where I make sure people understand the concepts properly and are able to build projects in the end. Trying to solve their doubts and building a community of developers who are passionate to gain practical knowledge instead of a piece of certificate.
