Building Modern Web Apps with HTML5 and DART
December 20, 2011
Modern Web apps are rich, snappy, and work offline and mobile, too. In this talk, we’ll look at the frameworks and HTML5 features that make these possible and introduce DART, a new language for structured Web programming. In particular, we’ll take a look at the motivation for DART, language syntax and features, the DART Editor, using the JS compiler, and improvements to the DOM. We’ll also discuss DART in relation to JS and GWT.
