Google has been uploading tons of videos of sessions from Google I/O, and these two deal specifically with the Dart programming language, so if you’re looking to learn more about it, and were unable to attend the event, you’re in luck.

The first video is from the session: Dart – A Modern Web Language. Here’s the video’s description:

The two creators of Dart will discuss the rationale behind Dart’s design and its impact on web scalability and performance. They’ll also present how Dart helps developers innovate by increasing their productivity without breaking backwards compatibility.

The second is from the session: Migrating Code from GWT to Dart. Here’s the description:

Curious to learn how to port your GWT code to Dart? In this session, we will go over Dart equivalents for various GWT libraries and idioms, techniques for interoperating with existing GWT server backends, and tricks to allow Dart code to talk to existing GWT and Javascript code.

According to Google, you should learn Dart because:

  • Not about ‘best’, all languages have strengths and weaknesses
  • It is fun to learn new languages, bilingualism is good for the brain and career
  • Dart is an important new language for Structured Web Applications
  • You can’t really evaluate a language without using it first
