Dart: Optional Typing, Mirrors and More

With Gilad Bracha

In this talk, we'll examine optional types and mirrors in Dart and elsewhere. We'll start some pre-history, demoing the Strongtalk system whose optional types were the pre-cursor to Dart's. Then we'll discuss the current state of Dart's typechecking. Next, we'll review mirror-based reflection and examine several variant APIs: Strongtalk, Newspeak and Dart.

    Revealing and informative.
    Seems to instill that languages are "sold onto" the developers on two levels - ease of use and modular power. And we haven't spoken of the ecosystems of staple infrastructures and connectors to the outside world, performance optimization and all real-world aspects that make the developer's daily life. Go Google!
