Conference given by Lars Bak at Devoxx 2013.
Nowadays, an ever growing part of the population don’t even bother to start any other application than a browser. More and more applications are web applications.
An obstacle to web applications is the development productivity.
Dart is an answer to that issue.
Dart is similar to Java in its abstraction mechanisms to Java, it should thus be very easy for a Java developer to write Dart code.
Dart uses extensively future-like structure, thus bringing a reactive programming style directly into the language.
Angular has ben ported to Dart: AngularDart. In the process, bith Dart and Angular were optimized to work together.
There exist stable versions of Angular.dart and Polymer.dart.
A Dart VM should be built-in Chrome web browser rather shortly.
