It enabled more innovation on the web but developers are still suffering from puzzling semantics and hard-to-identify errors. So what do we need to make you a better programmer? Lars and Kasper say it’s simplicity and consistency with programming languages and frameworks.
Learn more about their work with the Dart language by watching the video of their keynote from GOTO Chicago 2016 below.
Want to be a Better Programmer?
with Kasper Lund, Software Engineer at Google and Lars Bak, Co-Founder of Dart and Designer of V8
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.

Neutrinos are a billion times more plentiful than protons and neutrons, yet we know very little about them. What we do know is that they are produced when elements combine in the sun, and when they disintegrate in nuclear reactors. More recently we have discovered that they can change from one kind to another and then back again. Understanding neutrinos and how they behave is a major goal in the field of particle physics because neutrinos may hold the secret to why the universe is filled today with only matter, and no anti-matter.
Neutrino Monologues is a one-woman play that recounts the colorful history of these particles, from their earliest appearance in the early 1900’s and the experiments that won this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics, through today’s experiments taking place in GOTO Chicago’s own back yard, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia Illinois.
