This will be a joint meetup with GDG Silicon Valley. Please only RSVP with one of these two meetups. Otherwise, you will be preventing someone else from attending what we expect to be a full event.
There is a change in location for the January Meetup. We will have our Meetup at Google Quad 3.
Please help us with badging and sign-up for this Meetup with your full name by answering the question during RSVP. That way we can print out the badges ahead of time and speed up the sign-in process. Thanks!

Mobile, Multi-Device, Multi-Player with HTML5 and Dart
Mobile web is a huge opportunity, and it's easier than ever to develop for. To demonstrate, we present our mobile-first, multi-player, multi-device, offline-friendly, touch-enabled "tile-based word finding game" built with web technologies. All the client and server code for this game was created with Dart, Google's new web programming platform, and runs across modern desktop and mobile browsers.
The solutions demoed work for any mobile web developer. The talks shows you, with working code, how to handle situations such as: flexible layouts for multiple devices, persistence for objects that live on client and server, running offline, integrating touch, authentication with OAuth2, and reusability with Web Components.
Along the way, we'll show how Dart's features, like mixins and reflection, helped us increase code reuse and minimize repetition. We'll also show you how we used numerous community packages for the client and server, such as assets, database connectivity, and more.
Seth is a web engineer and is a Chrome Developer Advocate, helping developers of all sizes launch awesome modern web apps with Dart.
