This is an incredibly common sentiment. Everyone loves Flutter, but anyone who's used Kotlin feels like Dart is missing a couple of must-have modern features. Following the release of Dart 2, let's hope we can see a few of those features make their way into Dart.

Does Dart need to become Kotlin? No. But adopting a few of the best modern features would go a long way toward widespread acceptance of Dart.

The whole world writes constants as UPPERCASE - the whole world? - No, there is one language, only used inside Google, that wants to change this: Dart!

I remember learning programming in school and being very confused by "self referential" variable assignment like

a = a + 1

Couldn't you just subtract a from each side and reach 0=1??
Now many years later I'm confused again in a similar way when looking at the class definition of LinkedListEntry:

abstract class LinkedListEntry<E extends LinkedListEntry<E>>

My mind's internal typechecker just goes into an infinite recursion and leaves me dazed and confused.
