Unveiled on October 11th,2011 at the GOTO conference in Aarhus, Denmark, Dart is an exciting and expansive effort by some very, VERY smart people at Google who are looking to provide web developers better tools to build better web apps.
Serious developers are building serious software targeting the browser, but there is a lack of tools to support their vision. Dart opens a much broader horizon for web apps–finally offering a technology expressly evolved for structured web programming. Providing the full stack, dart includes libraries and an IDE that allow developers to share common knowledge and reduce app infrastructure start up time. Dart is smart, powerful, and scalable–and you can start using it right now.
At Google we’ve written our share of web apps, and we’ve tried in many ways to make improvements to that development process, short of introducing a new language. Now we think it’s time to take that leap. We designed Dart to be easy to write development tools for, well-suited to modern app development, and capable of high-performance implementations.
