My talk on Dart - JavaScript interop.

Apparently looking into the right camera is beyond me.

Next time I visit my colleagues in Europe, I can use Google Maps via Dart:

And, then I'll probably ignore it ... though the stopover in Hawaii is tempting.

As some Dart watchers (+Chris Buckett) have already noticed, Windows versions of Dartium are starting to land on our download server. Cheers to Anton Muhin for getting it up and running!

After a few days to pound on it a bit, we'll add it to the regular download page and announce on misc@.

+Adam Smith - Yes, the folder names match the bots. The "inc" bots do an incremental Release build. It's not quite per checkin - if more than one lands between builds, it'll roll forward to the latest. It'll also only archive and upload if the build is green.

Now, if they'd just gotten rid of Pi and defined Tau as 6.4, maybe this would have passed.
 
On the Wisdom of Lawmakers

In 1897 the state of Indiana almost passed a law, that would have changed the value of Pi to 3.2 while at the same time approving a method of squaring the circle. The House Education Committee had endorsed the bill and the House then unanimously passed it on February 5. Due to the unfortunate intervention of Mathematics Professor Clarence Abiathar Waldo, it didn't pass the Senate though. Just imagine, how much easier things would be...

Numberphile has a video on this:

We're starting to land a library to simplify Dart-JavaScript interoperation in the browser here:

https://github.com/dart-lang/js-interop/

Preliminary dartdocs are here with pointers to some samples:

http://dart-lang.github.com/js-interop/docs/js.html

Anyone will be able to pull this in via pub.  A more detailed article is coming soon!

+Justin Fagnani I actually started with an explicit enterScope / exitScope.  I took it out as the scoped() function seemed to result in cleaner and less likely to leak code.  But, some more feedback would be great here.  One concern with something like withScope(Scope, f()) is that f may create a lot of proxies when you only really care about keeping 1 alive - and perhaps it's better to just retain that one explicitly.

One of my colleagues brought in a 3D printer to show off at "Take your kid to work day". Very cool!

This looks really cool - an update to the minute "will it start raining" app based on your current location.

For you Scrabble addicts out there, a puzzle from Toby. He claims you can get 241 points from a single play with the letters on the left and 644 points from a single play with the letters on the right.
