Waiting for Dart

September 10, 2011 1:29:29.100

Google has two smart guys working on Dart - a new browser based language that will get unveiled next month:

Two conferences being held next month, one in Aarhus, Denmark on October 10 and another two weeks later in Portland, Oregon, are scheduled to feature Lars Bak, the designer of the V8 interpreter used in Google Chrome. In Aarhus, Bak will be joined by Gilad Bracha, a Google engineer and co-author of the original Java Language Specification and the creator of the Newspeak programming language, a derivative of Smalltalk.

Google released "Go" to a lot of yawns a few years back; seems to me that anything trying to compete with Javascript will have its hands full. I'll be interested to see what happens.
