I really need to try out WebStorm.

Today, JetBrains announced the new WebStorm 10 release, which includes significant enhancements for the Dart developer. The new version adds live analysis feedback, and fixes many reported issues. We highly recommend that all...

If you want to try out Angular 2 (very early days!), here's how to get started.

Angular is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications

They aren't all working yet, afaik. But yes, a cheat sheet and sampler are very good ideas.

Here's another article I edited recently.

The challenge here was not only to format the article so that most readers could quickly find the best solution for them, but also to give readers the criteria they need to assess other serialization solutions—for example, new packages that appear.

I'm not sure if it's a plus or a minus that I didn't know much about serialization before editing this article. On the plus side: you learn lots, plus you remember everything you had to learn to understand the article. On the minus side: it's harder to be sure you're using the terminology correctly and including/removing the right stuff.
 
Need to serialize data but confused by the plethora of Dart solutions?

+Nicolas Garnier has done the research for you. In this new article, he reviews 3 serialization solutions in depth, showing how to use them and giving guidelines for choosing the best solution for your project.

#dartlang
Choose the serialization strategy that's right for your project.

Check it out! I edited this, starting from an internal document that +Istvan Soos wrote. Most of the guidelines came from a single, fantastic email from Lasse Nielsen. Of course, all Dart-related style guides follow the footsteps of +Bob Nystrom, who wrote https://www.dartlang.org/articles/style-guide/.
 
numPages or pageCount? toSomething() or convertToSomething()? The new API Naming Guide lays out the guidelines that Dart engineers use when choosing API names.

#dartlang
Choose good names to make your API easier to understand.

Larry Page & Google are matching donations. Nice.
Help #FightEbola. For every $1 you donate, Google will donate $2 to four nonprofits doing critical humanitarian work in West Africa. Together we can do more. Donate now.

Very important info here.

async & await are a really nice way to write asynchronous code!
Asynchronous programming is everywhere – user interaction, network access, file I/O. Dart simplifies and enhances these scenarios with the 1.9 release. Today’s release introduces async methods and await expressions built on t...

Ive been using the C# implimentation alot lately and Id have to agree with you. Its increadibly flexable in most situations and the api seems to lend itself to way fewer contextual syntax "gotchas" than any other async api I ever tried.

My blog now has more bread baking posts than ice cream making posts. I might start writing about other low-sodium cooking/lifestyle topics, as well, since one of my relatives has to start a low-sodium diet due to edema.
Yesterday I made two tasty breads: Bread Machine Sprouted Grain Bread, from the One Degree organic foods website Company Corn Bread, from p. 305 of the Better Homes and Gardens New Baking Book (which was new in 1998) I want...

Introducing the Dart Enhancement Proposal (DEP) process.

Our developers have asked for more insight into the spec discussion process, and for a formal way to seed the spec process with proposals. Today, we're happy to announce Dart Enhancement Proposals as the primary way for the Dart team and the larger Dart community to work together to evolve the Dart language and libraries.
In July 2014, Ecma published the first version of the Dart language specification. Ecma TC52 continues to release updated versions with new features (for example, async/await). Our developers have asked for more insight into ...

Hey, bay area singer! (Everyone else, please excuse us.)

Wanna sing Haydn's Creation? We need more singers in every section to match the 33-piece orchestra. Our concerts in Alameda & Palo Alto are in early March, and you can join us again in Vienna at Stephansdom this July.

Rehearsals are mostly Monday evenings (starting January 5) in Alameda, with a couple of Saturday rehearsals in February. For details, see www.sdgloria.org.
