The importance of Google Dart

“Dart is a structured language for web programming. That means
you can actually build a website as you would write a little
Javascript. In fact, Dart can be run on a Java Virtual Machine, or
compiled into Javascript.

As I’ve written here many times, there is no Moore’s Law of
Software. That is, programming improves arithmetically, while
hardware improves geometrically. We have far more in the way of
hardware resources than we can possibly use right now, because we
can’t build stuff fast enough to use them.

Dart isn’t a cure for this problem, but it’s a help. Having a
big company like Google supporting it, pushing it, and teaching it
is going to help a lot, too. Learn more about all this at
dartlang.org.
