Really cool to see a hosting service for server-side apps built with Dart.
Finally, the time has come!

DartVoid's Beta starts today and we have the first developers trying out the platform as we speak!

It's been a long road here and the fact that we've had a great number of users who showed their interested has really helped us keeping the motivation up. 

In the coming days we will add more developers and try to add more documentation and examples.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us!

Going behind the scenes of Dart's recent server-side performance improvements.
Some technical information about the changes we did for Dart 1.3, to improve server-side performance:

* The HTTP stack, which is written in Dart, was reworked to take advantage of the Dart VM's generational garbage collector[1]. For example, short-lived objects are very cheap to collect, so we now allocate new buffers frequently, instead of reusing buffers.

* On Linux and Mac, we reduced the number of required system calls for asynchronous I/O, which significantly reduced I/O latency. This was accomplished by moving from a combined pull and push based I/O event model, to an entirely push based solution where the OS is responsible for emitting all I/O events.

* We profiled profiled some server-side applications and identified missing optimization opportunities in the Dart VM's optimizing compiler. The VM team also tuned the compiler (for example, inlining strategies and closure calls) for more efficient asynchronous Dart code.

* Again, by profiling some samples, we identified some elements in dart:core and dart:async, that was sub-optimal. (e.g Uri-parsing and toLowerCase).

Start your week with good news for Dart.
Still catching up with life after an amazing experience at Google, I woke up this morning with two great news re: +Dart : 1) Support in App Engine has started (, and 2) AngularDart apps size are back to normal (

They both are (almost were) big pains for me.

Great food, convenient location to the new exploratorium. Not exactly kid friendly, there's no kid menu, but they were happy to make a plain hamburger. Great service and drink menu. Note: many of the reviews are dated, as this restaurant recently reopened as a new higher end experience.

Inventive flavors, friendly service. They let you sample the flavors first. If you're going to get ice cream, might as well get something excellent. Not a ton of flavors, but it's very fresh. And you'll get flavors you won't find anywhere else. A bit of a wait on a Saturday afternoon, but weather was nice. Small store, be prepared to wait outside, but at least there's a line outside (velvet rope!) so it's not chaos. Also, bonus: espresso machine inside!

Nice, big location with lots and lots of hands-on exhibits to play with. They seem to favor small disparate installations instead of telling a sweeping cohesive story from installation to installation. This means you can jump from one thing to another based on your particular interest and what might have less of a line. The downside, for me at least, is I wasn't sure where to go next, and I felt like I was just checking off boxes by the end. However, my 6 year old had a great time, so in the end I was happy he was happy. Check out the Tinker's workshop. The marble wall is a ton of fun.
