Hey... Check it out, GDGers! One of our own organizers, +Monty Rasmussen, has had a tech article published on SitePoint. Pretty cool. And it's about Dart. Even cooler.

If there's one thing computers are good for, it's automating repetitive, tedious startup tasks that waste developers' time and, in the worst cases, serve as a deterrent to starting a project at all. Writing a few small scripts to handle the boilerplate and scaffolding can go a long way toward eliminating barriers to productivity.

Using Dart to create these scripts brings all the usual advantages: stellar tooling and high productivity, integrated debugging and profiling, and syntax and semantics built to help you move fast and scale up.

Join us, and work along, as we walk you through setting up a Dart development environment, creating a simple command-line app, and registering the app for global access on your system.

Big News: Our intrepid organizer, Monty Rasmussen, spent the last week of May at the GDG Global Summit and Google I/O 2015. We'll spend a few minutes going over the pertinent highlights.

Prizes: At the end of the meet there will be a short survey. Give us a little feedback and be entered to win awesome prizes from Google's quarterly give-away! The winner will get to choose a prize: a Nexus 9 tablet, an Acer 13 Chromebook, or an LG G Watch R.

Location: Our group will be meeting in the Front Conference Room (BR 102). Just as you enter the building, the room is on the right. There will be signs.

Enough of the serious stuff. Let's have some fun! This month, we're going to leave behind the CRUD apps, business logic, and daily stand-ups. We'll explore how features like real classes, comprehensive standard libraries, and syntactic sugar make Dart the perfect technology for producing browser-based games. Over the course of the meetup, we'll build a simple action game together, exploring concepts like drawing on the HTML5 canvas, random number generation, and game loops using one of the modern browsers' hottest new features, requestAnimationFrame().

Perhaps best of all for those of you new to Dart: all the game code we write can be composed and executed in the online Dart playground, DartPad (http://dartpad.dartlang.org). No setup required! Just bring any device that can run a modern web browser and you're good to go. Of course, if you already use a full-fledged editing environment like WebStorm, Eclipse, or Sublime Text, those will work too.

Big News: Dart 1.11 was released! We'll spend a few minutes talking about the changes and new features.

Prizes: At the end of the meet there will be a short survey. Give us a little feedback and be entered to win awesome prizes from Google's quarterly give-away! The winner will get to choose a prize: a Nexus 9 tablet, an Acer 13 Chromebook, or an LG G Watch R.

Hi, everyone! I know there must be at least 200 (at least, right?) of you out there who really, really regret having missed our June Dart event, but I have great news for each and every one of you: You can live (or relive) the glory by checking out our links/notes page.

There, you'll find a link to the tutorial/article I wrote for the event, and it should have everything you need to learn about writing command-line utilities with Dart.

Ta-da! Another month, another Dart Newsletter. New language features, Polymer, new Dart books...it's all in there! Oh, and a meetup in Utah for those of you lucky enough to live there.  ;)

Thanks +Jessica Olsen. I didn't get my invitation but +Dave Watson did and let me know.  Is there a better way to notify people instead of a Google+ post? I don't look at Google+ often, perhaps once a month or more.

Agenda: New plan this month! We're going to be discussing all things new from I/O, and then trying them out! We also will have a Tango Project tablet, accompanying Dive VR headset, at least 1 Nexus 5 running M, and Google Cardboard. 

Location info: As you come to Instructure tonight please note a few things. 1. Please park on the ground level and enter the giant glass doors. (This is the 2nd floor) Elevators are to the right. There will be no way to get into the building after 6:30. The doors will become locked. 2. Please come up to the 7th floor. From there you will walk down some stairs to the 6th floor where we will be meeting. We will have signs posted.

Preparation: For those interested in learning and trying things out. Here is the suggested preparation:

Download and install Android Studio:

http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

Download the SDKs you wish to work with. They can be downloaded within the SDK manager of Android Studio. Also download the Google USB driver which is also found in the SDK manager.

There is WiFi, but these downloads are large and will take some time, so anything you can download ahead of time would be helpful. If you have an Android device, bring it along with a USB cable.

Just in time for our May meetup on Wednesday, May 20th at 6:30pm, here's this month's Dart Newsletter, full of tips, tricks, news, and probably something else you just can't live without.
Move over, Node! Dart works for server and console apps too! Bring all of the advantages of Dart in the browser to the server side, but without the need to compile to JavaScript. Like JS on Node, Dart running in its own virtual machine is event-driven, asynchronous, and allows you to build a ...

Google, Developer and Utah. Does it get any better?
Introduction

The Google Developer Group Utah, or as we like to call ourselves - the GDG Utah, is a developer group for people who are interested and enthusiastic about Google's developer technologies. 

We focus on everything from Android, App Engine and Compute Engine to HTML5, Chrome, YouTube, Maps, AngularJS, Google+ and much more. Our goal is to provide an environment where people can learn about Google products, innovate and collaborate together in a social setting. We are passionate about technology and we invite anyone else who shares this same interest and passion to attend and participate in our group.

Disclaimer: GDG Utah is an independent group; our activities and the opinions expressed on this +Page should in no way be linked to Google, the corporation.
