Dart

Dart brings structure to web app engineering with a new language, libraries, and tools.
Records live every Tuesday at 12:30pm Eastern / 9:30am Pacific / 17:30 UTC.
Hosts: Randal Schwartz and Aaron Newcomb. Dart brings structure to web app engineering with a new language, libraries, and tools. Dart is a class-based, object-oriented language with lexical scoping, closures, and optional static typing. Dart helps you build structured modern web apps and is easy to learn for a wide range of developers. Dart Editor and the SDK provide an integrated development and debugging experience. The editor supports refactoring, breakpoints, code completion, code navigation, and more. The SDK contains the stand-alone virtual machine, a package manager, and Chromium with an embedded Dart VM. Dart can be compiled to JavaScript, so you can use it for web apps in all modern desktop and mobile browsers. Our JavaScript compiler generates minimal code thanks to tree-shaking. Dart apps can also run on the server, in a stand-alone Dart VM. Guest: Seth Ladd. Download or subscribe to this show at twit.tv/floss. We invite you to read, add to, and amend our show notes.
