Who This Book Is For

If you want to become a developer for the modern web, or wish to add Dart to your tool belt, then this book is for you. The book assumes you have basic HTML experience and know how web applications work. Some previous programming experience, preferably in a modern language like C#, Java, Python, Ruby or JavaScript, will give you a head start. You can work with Dart on your preferred platform, be it Linux, Mac OS X or Windows.

What You Will Learn

  • Structure your code using functions, classes, generics, packages and libraries
  • Use the power of modern browsers to process and store data
  • Make games by drawing, and using audio and video in the browser
  • Develop an application with a model-driven and spiral-paced approach
  • Discover the Observatory tools for profiling memory and CPU usage of Dart programs
  • Store your app's data in MySQL and MongoDB through Dart
  • Build powerful HTML5 forms, validate and store data in local storage, and use web components to build your own user interface
  • Run your Dart server on an App Engine Managed VM

In Detail

Dart is an open source programming language for the web, developed at Google, with a steadily growing community. It is a single language for both client and server, appropriate for the full range of devices on the web – including phones, tablets, laptops, and servers. It encompasses the lessons of the last two decades of web programming.

This book will give you a thorough overview of Dart, taking you through its ecosystem, syntax, and development principles.

With this book, you will build web games using HTML5, audio, and video, and also dive into processing and displaying data in HTML5 forms with Dart. You will also learn how web components fit together with HTML5, and how to apply them in business web applications of the future. You will discover how to store data on the client, communicate data between client and server with JSON, and store JSON data with MongoDB and MySQL.

Stop solving new challenges with the same old tools – let Dart show you a whole new way.

Style and approach

This book provides you a project-based approach, with everything you need to start or enhance your career in the future of web development with Dart. It follows the spiral approach: each project builds up in successive spirals, adding new features in each step.
