=======================================

Since the early days of the Web, software developers could use anyprogramming language to create client-side web applications... aslong as it was JavaScript. And while JavaScript has made significantstrides in performance and has added many additional features (asYakov Fain showed us at the June NYJavaSIG meeting at QCon), itremains as the sole web language to express all of your algorithmicthoughts for your UI/UX. Imagine if you only had PHP to writeserver-side apps. Get the idea?

With the advent of HTML5, the Web is changing into a substantial programmaticfoundation with APIs for... well, everything. Enterprises will be (and are)developing sophisticated client-to-cloud enterprise applications thatrival native applications. However JavaScript may not be suitable formany enterprise IT organizations for a variety of reasons.

Enter Dart from Google.

Dart is more than a new, structured language for web developers. Similar to Java, it is object-oriented, with single inheritance and supports interfaces and abstract classes. Dart is also a collection of libraries (for client and server), an editor, a virtual machine, browser integration, and most importantly a compiler to modern JavaScript.

Learn about Dart’s motivations and goals, and see how Dart can help you write complex apps for the entire modern web.

    Helpful presentation. Perfect for wrapping my brain around the project though I would argue DART's HTML5 connection is a stretch.

    I have a confirmed RSVP yet could only join the waitlist for a ticket at Eventbrite? Have I fallen into an Evenbrite wormhole? Should I just show up?

      I don't see it. When did you send it?

      Sent it again...do you have an alternate email address?

    I won't be able to make the overview session but still plan to attend the workshop - hopefully the eventbrite registration still holds?

      There are two eventbrite registration URLs, one for each event. You needed to register for each event. If you did, you're fine.

      Ah - thanks. Didn't realize that - had registered only for one, so I guess I'll miss this one. Hope (given the demand) it is possible to do a future workshop ...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
