FAST university graduate, Sakina Abbas has become Pakistan’s first female Google Developer Expert for Flutter and Dart. The Google Developer Expert is a global program to recognize individuals who are thought leaders in one or more Google technologies. These professionals contribute to and support startup ecosystems around the world by helping them build and launch highly innovative apps. Abbas’ passion for technology led her to start her own tech venture called ‘ReacTree.’
Introduced by Google, Flutter is a software development kit that allows users to develop applications on both iOS and Android. Other than that, users can also develop web apps for all kinds of platforms.
Designed for application development, Dart is an easy-to-use programming language and is one of the most popular languages for developing apps.
Abbas earned her title of Google Developer Expert by showcasing her interest in Flutter and Dart which led her to learn the technology and share her expertise with people worldwide. Upon hearing news of her latest achievement, she said: “Thank you to each and every one of you who has supported me all along. It’s the fact that you’re able to learn something from me and then apply it yourselves at the end of the day that motivates me to keep contributing to this community in every way I can.”
This is a positive development for Pakistani women in tech. A recent technology sector study (P@sha Study) in Pakistan revealed that women comprise only 14% of the workforce and that the sector is largely dominated by male entrepreneurs and executives.
