Dart at Devoxx 2013

Devoxx 2013 is here, and Dart has a strong showing on Thursday, November 14th.

Keynote with Lars Bak


At 9:40am, Dart co-founder Lars Bak delivers the morning keynote titled "Shaping the Future of Web Development".


Q&A with the Dart Team


At 1:10pm, representatives from the Dart team will take your questions in a "ask us anything" format. Bonus: we'll be playing buzzword bingo.


Building a mobile, multi-player HTML5 game with Dart


At 2:00pm, Seth Ladd presents a case study on his team's recent project to build a multi-player, multi-device, mobile-friendly, HTML5 game with Dart.


Happy hour with Dart and Angular


At 6:00pm, meet the Dart and Angular teams for a happy hour. We'll have food and drinks, and plenty of opportunity to chat with the engineers behind the projects. Visit the Google booth, or find a Dart or Angular engineer, to get a wristband (free while supplies last). Hope to see you there!

Stop by and say Hi!


If you're at Devoxx, please stop by the Google both to say Hi. Dart engineers will be around at the conference, and they'd love to hear more about what you're building.

Dart in 2016: The fastest growing programming language at Google, 2nd fastest growing in TIOBE Index

Dart was the fastest growing programming language at Google in 2016 with millions of lines of code written. It also made it to TIOBE Index Top 20 this month (see TIOBE's methodology).

It takes time to build something as ambitious as Dart and, in some ways, Dart is still in its infancy. But we're glad the hard work is starting to pay off.

Many thanks to our amazing community!

We're going to celebrate by ... releasing 1.22 next week (as per our usual 6 week release schedule).

A stronger Dart for everyone

We are constantly asking ourselves:
How do we make developers even more productive when writing Dart apps? We believe that a critical part of the answer to this question is to make strongmode – a sound static type system for Dart – the standard for all Dart developers.

Teams that use Dart to build apps like Soundtrap, AdWords, AdSense, and Greentea say they really enjoy using strong mode features, such as early error detection. In fact, teams that have switched completely to strong mode cite not only early error detection but also better code readability and maintainability as major benefits. We hear this both from small teams and Рeven more so Рfrom large teams with hundreds of developers writing and maintaining millions of lines of Dart code. As Björn Sperber from Soundtrap says,
Strong mode and the smooth integration with IntelliJ is a joy to use and a huge improvement. If you’ve tried out Flutter, you’ve already used strong mode checks from the Dart analyzer.

Given the benefits …

AngularDart 2.1 and new Components

AngularDart got its own dedicated team 5 months ago. Last month, we launched 2.0 final on the Dart Developer Summit. Today, we’re releasing the first minor release after that: 2.1.

Since the focus of AngularDart is Productivity, Performance, Stability, there are no major breaking changes (see the changelog) — but a lot of behind-the-scenes improvements. Your apps will get slightly smaller and faster (even relative to 2.0 which already made huge strides in size and performance since the compiled-from-TypeScript days).

Many features that AngularJS had to implement for JavaScript and TypeScript are not needed in Dart (because Dart already has those features out-of-the-box). So we’re removing them from AngularDart. Renderer is deprecated in favor of plain-old dart:html. NgPlural is going away — Dart programs can use the package:intl library.

New components

On the Dart Developer Summit, we launched AngularDart Components — the material design widgets Google is using in customer-facing apps …
