Get started with Dart (Free Egghead.io course)

Hello friends👋 It's with great excitement to announce that I have released my first ever Dart course on Egghead.io! It's free to watch and it only takes half an hour to go through it.

The purpose of this short course is to give you an overview of the language features and tooling of the Dart ecosystem. This will provide you with a base knowledge to be able to build web, server and mobile applications.

Here's what we'll cover in this short course:

  1. Setup Your First Dart Project on Mac
  2. Setup Your First Dart Project on Windows
  3. Setup Your First Dart Project on Linux
  4. Understand Built-in Types in Dart
  5. Understand Variables and Constants in Dart
  6. Define Optional Named and Positional Parameters for Functions and Methods in Dart
  7. Control Flow Statements in Dart
  8. Understand Classes and Inheritance in Dart
  9. Define Interfaces and Share Class Members through Mixins in Dart
  10. Capture and Return Asynchronous Values with Futures in Dart
  11. Capture and Handle Data Sequences with Streams in Dart
  12. Manage Package Dependencies with Pub

And going beyond the basics for my Patrons.

What do you think about the current status of Dart? I was thinking that this language was already dead.

Nope, Dart ain't dead.

The community has been experiencing growth and enterprise-level companies have already got on board. See why Dart is a viable option for modern web development and also see the schedule for the upcoming Google IO 2019 conference.

Out of curiosity, have you used Dart?

Interesting! Yeah I used it once in my university for a hackathon. Since then, never heard about it again. Good news that is still alive

Is this somewhere you've searched from HN or any biased article talking about dart being the worst language? It was called dead horse project, but eventually, became a unicorn. What do you think of dart today?
