Chapter 1. What is Dart?
Dart is a new language developed by Google that’s getting attention in web app circles. We asked Kathy Walrath and Seth Ladd, members of Google’s developer relations team, to explain Dart’s purpose and its applications.
Writing a web app can be lots of fun, especially at the beginning when you experience instant gratification: code, reload, repeat.
Enter Dart, an open-source project that aims to enable developers to build more complex, highly performant apps for the modern web. Using the Dart language, you can quickly write prototypes that evolve rapidly, and you also have access to advanced tools, reliable libraries, and good software engineering techniques.
