3 Dart events at GOTO Conference


Next week, Dart is going to be at the GOTO Conference in Aarhus, Denmark! We have three Dart events this year.


After an introduction to the language, we'll guide you through all the steps to create your first Dart application. The code lab was battle tested in June during Google I/O, and is ready to go. We'll lead you through the process of building a modern web app with the Dart platform, using both client-side and server-side Dart. You will explore the language, libraries, editor, and integration with Chromium. You'll leave this session with a working Dart app that works in modern browsers. Register now!


To make Dart run in all modern browsers, we have implemented an optimizing Dart-to-JavaScript compiler. Performance-wise the biggest challenge is the gap between the semantics of Dart's low-level operators and JavaScript's builtin primitives. This presentation will introduce you to the Dart language and the deployment options before diving into the details of the intermediate representation and the implemented optimizations.


Dart Editor is a lightweight, open-source editor for writing Dart applications. I will demonstrate how the editor helps you efficiently write modern web apps with Dart. After creating a Dart application we'll quickly navigate and search through Dart source, and accurately write code with refactoring and code completion tools. You'll also see how the editor connects to Dartium (Chromium with the Dart VM) for a fast development and debugging experience.

We look forward to meeting you and listening to your feedback. Hope to see you at GOTO!
