Presentation: "Keynote Wednesday Morning: Want to be a Better Programmer?"

Time: Wednesday 09:30 - 10:30 / Location: Grand Ballroom A & B

The design of the Dart programming language is heavily based on syntax, features, and performance characteristics from past object-oriented systems. This intentional choice has resulted in a productive and yet simple to learn programming language with clear semantics. In addition to discussing important language design decisions, we will show you how an object-oriented approach based on simple and understandable constructs can make you a better programmer.
