With Beginning Dart, discover a new way to take a web project rapidly from prototype to the scale of a large application like Gmail and beyond. Understand how Dart breaks through the limits of the existing web browser and JavaScript. Learn the Dart language by following the complete development of a fun, realtime web app tracking customer’s beer mugs.

"JavaScript is great, but..." You hear that sentence a lot from's not object-oriented, doesn't scale well, ...there's no type checking, and so on. Dart changes all that. JavaScript is a lightweight scripting language that was not intended for the large-scale applications that people are building with it today. From the outset, Google set out to make Dart the language that web developers need today. It is better structured, more secure, and more powerful than JavaScript, yet it remains easy to learn and start programming with. Beginning Dart collects all the information developers will need to hit the ground running using this exciting Google technology.

Beginning Dart encourages Dart best practice from the start, showing you how to write extensible and truly modular code. You'll see how to use unit testing and test-driven development in your projects, as well as the best ways to write performant web applications. In addition to learning the Dart language, you'll cover more advanced topics such as programming the Dart VM and contributing to the Dart project.
