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 ...

Come give a talk at the Dart Summit and hang out with your other friends in the Dart ecosystem and your friendly Dart team!
 
Calling all Dartisans - Propose your session or case study for the Dart Developer Summit.

The Dart Developer Summit is your forum for meeting the Dart engineering team, Googlers using Dart, and your fellow Dartisans.  Our community has told us they want to hear how you are using Dart. What is your cool new pub package? How did you use Dart on the client or server? What are you tips and tricks?

Our sessions are live streamed and recorded to help you get the word out. The summit is April 28th-29th in San Francisco, California. Call for Proposals closes on Jan 30th!

See you there!

My book finally showed up on Google Play! And it looks super nice in the Play Books app, if I do say so myself. :)

I wrote a blog post with some fun little animated demos about the random dungeon generator my roguelike uses!
Rooms and Mazes: A Procedural Dungeon Generator · December 21, 2014 — code, dart, game-dev, hauberk, procedural-generation, roguelike. Several months ago I promised a follow-up to my previous blog post about turn-based game loops in my roguelike. Then I got completely sidetracked by ...

I wrote a little blog post about how launching my self-published book went. If you're curious about sales numbers and stuff like that, you might dig it.
How My Book Launch Went · November 20, 2014 — book, design, game-dev. Greetings, superfans! When we last tuned in, I was just about to “launch” my self-published book. I put that in quotes because it's an awfully serious-sounding word for what was really just doing some clicking on my laptop.

Do you (like me) work in multiple GitHub repos? Do your users file bugs in the wrong one sometimes? This will help!
 
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

My free web book has escaped the confines of the Internet! You can now get Game Programming Patterns in print or eBook!

Also, I wrote a crazy-long blog post about how I did it: http://journal.stuffwithstuff.com/2014/11/03/bringing-my-web-book-to-print-and-ebook/
Hey, Game Developer! Do you struggle to make your code hang together into a cohesive whole? Find it harder to make changes as your codebase grows? Feel like your game is a giant hairball where everything is intertwined with everything else? Wonder if and how design patterns apply to games?

Note: I haven't done extensive testing yet, but basic pub commands and dart VM worked without issues. If you do notice anything weird, please post in the comments on the post or here :)
