Inspiring article on World Refugee Day by my daughter Susan about her father, my husband, who was a refugee.from Poland.

Sad to report that my sister-in-law Kim Carlson has passed away.

Very impressed with some of the supporting packages people have built for Dart, specifically shelf and stagehand.

I was looking at a bug handling odd status codes from an HTTP server. I tried to manage using existing servers for a while. I knew there was a package for Dart servers and I should probably just write a custom one, but I hadn't used that package before, and I didn't want to deal with the learning curve.

Finally, I gave in. Used stagehand to generate a project and it turns out it has a "shelfserver" option. The resulting package had one short file in the bin directory, and exactly one line I needed to change. It took me almost as long to remember what the server package was called as it did to get it working. Kudos to +Kevin Moore +Natalie Weizenbaum +Devon Carew +Seth Ladd and others involved with https://github.com/google/stagehand and https://github.com/dart-lang/shelf

Also, how do I run this? Does it work if I just do "pub run server"? Yes, it does. Awesome.

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!

Dart makes a great server-side development language. Node-style asynchronicity, Futures, Streams, async/await, type annotations, and now: App Engine Managed VMs!
