Let's review and understand the base model that we will convert. This will help later during the conversion process.

Phase 0: Understand the base model
11:53

Let's put the basic components into place and create the very first visible Page to get started.

Phase 1: UIStructure and your first Page
08:11
Phase 2: Settings and more Pages
11:28

We will add more pages so the entire model is now part of our Material Design framework. Also, we will add our own Buttons everywhere.

Phase 3: Buttons everywhere
15:46

Let's put all model content into Cards to improve visuals further.

Phase 4: Cards everywhere
20:02

Still part of Phase 4, we will also add "Floating Action Buttons", a special type of button that is very prominent.

Phase 4a: Floating Action Buttons
05:39

In this phase, we will include Help elements to guide users through the model as well as the Sheet element for full-screen information.

Phase 5: Help and Sheet elements
14:22

Let's create a settings page and make it part of the side-menu for our model, so it is always accessible.

Phase 6: Side Menu settings
08:59

Finally, we round off our model by formatting values and text elements, rounding results, adding time units and color-coding text based on conditions.

Phase 7: Value and Text Formatters
