Dart with Seth Ladd and John McCutchan

  • Feb 28, 2013 · 6:00 PM

We have two exciting talks about Dart in February!

Talk #1 — <x-declarative-renaissance>With Dart and Web Components</x-declarative-renaissance> by Seth Ladd

Start saying what you mean, stop making div soup. Thanks to Web Components and its family of new web platform features, you can finally encapsulate the behavior, structure, and style of widgets and make them truly reusable. And thanks to Dart, you can bring all this goodness to modern browsers today. Come learn how you can build structured webapps with a structured language, and compile everything to JavaScript.

About Seth Ladd

Seth is a web engineer and Developer Advocate at Google, where he works with web developers and the Dart team. He is a conference organizer, book author, and loves badminton.

Talk #2 — Bringing SIMD to the Web via Dart by John McCutchan

Are you ready to make software on the web even faster? The Dart VM is adding experimental support for Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) operations. SIMD operations unlock the full performance of CPUs by performing 4 operations at once. That's a 4x speedup. Every smart phone, tablet, and PC includes a SIMD processor which sits unused. Come learn about Dart, SIMD, and making your web software fast.

About John McCutchan

John is a Developer Programs Engineer at Google. While an undergraduate, John created inotify—the Linux kernel filesystem event notification system used in every Linux distribution and Android phone. After receiving an M.Sc. in Computer Science from McMaster University, John joined Sony Computer Entertainment of America, where he optimized the Bullet Physics library for the PlayStation 3. John also developed Move.Me, which gave hobbyists, students, and researchers an open source SDK for the PlayStation Move controller on their PCs.

    Seth's talk was really interesting, but I feel like he didn't spend enough time talking about Dart, ironically. It was also pretty Chrome-centric. A lot of what he talked about was focused on what was available in the Chrome browser, without really talking about timeline for common (or even standards body) acceptance. That said, Chrome is an awesome browser and what everyone should be using. :-)

    February 28, 2013

    • Seth L.

      So to be clear, it was only Chrome-centric because that's what's able to run Web Components today. But I expect this to change. You can of course use Dart to compile Web Components down to vanilla JS and HTML so that it works across browsers (aka polyfill). Thanks for coming!

    • Mike M.

      For sure, the Web Components stuff was really impressive. The Shadow Root stuff in particular made me http://cdn.uproxx.com...­ . I came to the meetup specifically to hear about how Dart made web development easier. Maybe the code lab would have been better for me -- still waitlisted! :-(

      March 1, 2013

  • Matt M.

    Seth I think the team did great! I hoping that this community gets bigger fast. I use to like javascript a lot until I worked with it more. I am hoping Dart will mature fast!!!

  • Michael Cresta (aka P.

    I already was certain that DART is the way to go. Yet, these two presentations convinced me all the more that it is so. The details and features that were presented and how they were presented, I can say that I was once again, impressed. Also, thank you to Yelp, as always, the folks of Yelp are wonderful hosts.

    Hi, everyone, Peter suggested that I also leave a comment here about my company's open job posting. I'm a web developer for Jobvite, a "little" (does >60 employees still count?) startup which provides a SaaS product for company recruiters and staffers from well over a thousand companies, including most of the hot tech companies here in the Bay Area.

    We're looking for more front-end developers to help share the load of our expansion plans, and hoping to find some great talent through meetups! At least, that's how I got my job there, and I want to pay it forward as it were. :-)

    Take a look at these engineering positions, and even if the position seems too advanced for you, please reach out to myself (mikemac AT jobvite DOT com) or go ahead and apply for whichever one of them you think is most appealing to you and we'll help you find the best fit in the company.

    Any questions? Go ahead and contact me if you like, I'm happy to answer them.

    Good talks. They could be separate sessions by themselves. The first present skipped a lot of slides that I thought would be useful as intro to bart.

    Awesome event with two excellent presenters.

    February 28, 2013

    Good talks. Looking forward to explore dart. Is it replacing gwt? Complementing?

    Actually, is anyone going to be heading down to the Santa Clara/San Jose/Sunnyvale area after the meetup? I just ran the public transit numbers and would really prefer not to spend 2.5 hours on the train/bus system to get home. :-)

    Sorry, can't make it now. Hopefully someone else can take my place.

    Most finance related sites are bogged down with tons of JS.
    Also they often pull in content and JS from many other 3rd party sites like google analytics and facebook.
    It kind of reminds me of crapware which I find on a new PC.
    Can DART help me keep my site clean and pure? site: stockbeaver dot com

      You might be interested in Dart's tree shaking, which eliminates the need to link out to all the different JS files: http://blog.sethladd....­
