Debunking Dart Myths

Today, Seth Ladd, Developer Advocate for Dart, was interviewed by Addy Osmani, Developer Programs Engineer for Chrome and Tools. Addy asked the tough questions that many web developers have about Dart, and Seth debunked (you might say busted) some of the most common myths.

Watch the video to see questions answered like "Is Dart out to replace JavaScript?" (spoiler: nope!), "Does Dart work with JavaScript code?" (spoiler: you bet!), and "Isn't Dart's compiled output to JavaScript really big?" (spoiler: not any more!)

If reading is more your thing, Seth also wrote up 9 Dart myths debunked.

As always, the Dart team wants to hear what you have to say. Join the discussion in the Dart mailing list, ask questions on Stack Overflow, or file bugs and feature requests on Thanks for trying Dart!
