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

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 (http://dartlang.org) 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.
