In Detail

The Dart programming language can be used for both client- and server-side development. It combines the best from many of today’s languages. Dart’s cohesive, scalable, and robust web programming features will help individuals and organizations solve challenges in a whole new way.

You will learn how to use various APIs for asynchronous calls, GeoLocation, Audio, File Drag and Drop, touch events, and more. Later on, you will build custom elements with Web Components and build on top of the previous parts with polymer.dart. You will also learn about data bindings and how to use AngularDart. You’ll get to grips with writing CLI scripts, MySQL queries, Apache and nginx configuration, WebSockets, and so much more. Finally, you’ll learn the unit testing and profiling, and writing native extensions in C/C++.
