  JavaScript Attack/Defend


As developers and designers we work hard to build visually attractive, fast and easy to maintain applications. Our goals are to make sure the applications we build stick to users and keep them coming back for more. Security is not always at the forefront of our minds.

For most of you, this will just be a re-cap and probably not provide much...

  The Essence of Google Dart: Building Applications, Snapshots, Isolates


Wіth thousands of programming languages floating around, why is Google introducing Google Dart? What can it possibly add? The short answer: the Google Dart team wanted a language well suited to modern application development, both on the server and the (mobile) client. Some of Dart's features address problems that languages like Java or Javascript have long had.
