Coming to Google I/O 2016? Come check out Randall Sarafa's and my talk on our WhatsApp/Google Drive Backup integration.

It was a fun (and challenging journey) and we'll be taking a close, behind-the-scenes look at how we landed it (and what our biggest challenges were).

Day 2 (May 19), 10:00 AM, Stage 9

If you're not able to attend I/O this year, the talk will be recorded and I'll add the video link to this post when available.

Over a billion people use WhatsApp Messenger to communicate with friends and family across the world.

We’ll give a behind-the-scenes look at the technical challenges we faced, highlighting t...

+1! I've been using Dart for a bunch of server side code (webapps but also scripts and command line tools) lately. And indeed it's a very nice and productive language for this.
 
Dart makes a great server-side development language. Node-style asynchronicity, Futures, Streams, async/await, type annotations, and now: App Engine Managed VMs!
Today you can develop and deploy Dart server applications that run on the Google App Engine Managed VMs beta. The productivity of the Dart language and libraries are a great fit for server applications. You get the competitiv...

I've been using Dart ForceMVC lately. It's a really Cool Spring MVC-like framework for Dart server side.

A bunch of cool new features have been added lately:
 - Support for the upcoming Dart on App Engine's managed VMs (check issue #18)
 - A useful "pub serve" integration (check issue #23)

If you are building Dart servers I highly recommend the ForceMVC framework. And if you were using Spring MVC on Java you'll feel at home!
 
A new version of ForceMVC landed, with some tricks to help you during development ... http://buff.ly/1oDbUzE

Hey SJ if you have reinstalled the app on your new device and are using the same account then if they were using the app data folder your notes would have been restored. The app does not mention that it's doing online backup though so it's probably storing everything locally...

Hey all,
I've build a Tool that helps you move issues between GitHub repos which, oddly, you can't do by default using the GitHub UI. Please check it out: github-issue-mover.appspot.com

Also It's entirely written in Dart, both server-side and client-side. I kind of used this project to ramp up on the language and it's been an awesome-awesome experience :) Also it's hosted on AppEngine Managed VMs. If you're interested in learning about any of this stuff feel free to have a look at the GitHub repo: I've added some description of the project's code and directories.

Suggestions/Questions welcomed!

#dartlang   #appengine  
github-issue-mover - Making it easy to migrate issues between repos.

I've joined the #dartlang  team a few weeks ago! I've been ramping up since then. Super excited about the language!
Dart is a new platform for building structured web apps for modern browsers. It includes a language, a VM, libraries, tools, and a compiler to JavaScript. Try Dart today!

Great food and service. Could only be better if they changed the green "theme" by a different color :D
