In this section will complete a UI challenge and build a stopwatch application.
The two most important topics we will cover are tickers and matrix transforms.
- Tickers are at the foundation of the Flutter animation framework. By learning what they are and how to use them you'll get a much better understanding about how animations work under the hood.
- When you build custom UIs with animations, you'll often need to traslate, rotate or scale widgets on screen. Matrix transforms are key in understanding how to do this.
We'll also get some practice working with widgets such as
LayoutBuilder, and cover a bit of state management.
