IM 52: What About Dart?

October 30, 2011 20:23:59.841

Welcome to episode 52 of Independent Misinterpretations - a Smalltalk and dynamic language oriented podcast with James Robertson, Michael Lucas-Smith, and David Buck.

This week dave Buck and I welcome Alan Knight, Cincom's engineering manager to the podcast to talk about the new Dart language from Google. Dart has a fair amount of Smalltalk influences from its designers, and we talk about how some of that surfaced in the language..

Interesting discussion of Dart. Thanks.

Btw, as I understand it Dart does not replace Go, the development of which continues (latest r.60.3) and it's aimed at a different application domain. I did a lot of reading into Go (and watched the available videos) and ran through the tutorials, and it's clearly primarily as a server-side language, e.g. Google AppEngine support. That said, there were subtle hints in the videos that Android support for Go is something that might happen.
