Presentation Download: Dart (1.54 MB)
Dart is Google’s new class-based programming language for creating structured applications that can run within a web browser. Developed with the goals of simplicity, efficiency, and scalability, the Dart language combines powerful new language features with familiar language constructs into a clear, readable syntax. Life-long Smalltalker and current Googler, Eric Clayberg, will provide an overview and demonstration of Dart and explain why it is his new second favorite language. In addition to introducing Dart, Eric will also compare and contrast it in detail with Smalltalk.

One of our key goals with Dart is ‘toolability’, and as the person leading our tooling work, Eric is a key player in the development of Dart. With his extensive Smalltalk background he is a great person to be able to talk to a Smalltalk audience about Dart, the things that are inspired from Smalltalk, and the things it does differently.–Lars Bak, Google Inc.
