I'm currently employed with an SDET profile, but am looking to move to a .NET/Flutter developer role. I have a total of 4 years of experience and I am pretty good at coding, fixing bugs and coming up with solutions to problems. I have experience with multiple programming languages and can learn on-the-go, but my most comfortable languages are C#, Dart. I have only experimented with building Front-end applications, but haven't worked on one in an enterprise environment. Suggestions/Guidance pls?
