The results of the Q1 survey are out. I am surprised to see that both sides of the job interview table are having problems. Hiring managers with finding qualified candidates, and job seekers with getting their skills to the level required by hiring companies.
In my experience, job seekers who do not have much experience working in established Flutter teams should concentrate on growing as software engineers. If you are a good software engineer who knows a bit of Flutter, you have a higher chance to find a job in the field, compared to a Flutter developer with no knowledge of software architecture and design.

🧑💻 Development in Flutter
by David Li
If you are looking for a job, you can make your resume stand out by generating it using Flutter. With the pdf package, you can create a pdf using widgets, like you would create a Flutter app. See an example in this repo.
Executing resource-intensive tasks in Flutter on the main thread could freeze your app. In this article, you’ll learn how to modify code to move intensive computation to a background thread using
compute(). By utilizing this method, the heavy task is shifted to the background thread while the main thread maintains a smooth user interface.
An improvement in Flutter 3.10 is the making of
MediaQuery into an
InheritedModel, which allows you to avoid many unnecessary rebuilds.
👨💻 Software engineering
“I couldn’t shake the sense that if we just put the time and effort we were spending on estimates into actually completing tasks, we would get a lot more done.” This is a nice read about why, in some teams, classic Scrum estimations are a waste of time.
