Dart vs Kotlin vs Coffee vs other Alternate Javascript Lounge

Will Dart, Kotlin, Coffee and other alternate JS languages gain traction in the web world? Who cares! They're cool languages and they have some seriously neat ideas that make them worthwhile to explore.

Google have hits and misses (SPDY has been remarkably successful for instance), we don?t know yet, but big brains are working on this language and it is a remarkable step up from Javascript.

CoffeeScript appears to have taken a large portion of JavaScripters by storm and "is just javascript" in sheeps clothing.

Jetbrains are market leaders in IDEs and Language Tooling and are ow tackling the language barrier themselves with a JVM/JS language.

I don't really like Meetup for Code Lounge - we could perhaps do something else?

Please bring your own setup (laptop, etc) and ideally have installed:

- Your editor of choice
- Git (as appropriate for your environment)

- Maven Install
- Dartium
- Dart compilers (more info pending)

This isn?t a lecture, its a boots-n-all learning experience so the more basic reading and experimenting you do up front, the more you?ll get out of it and the more it will solidify your own understanding. It is unknown yet if there will even be any Dart experts there.

We will have available

  • Power
  • Wifi network
  • Projector
  • Coffee Machine (Nespresso with a wide range of coffee pods)
  • 2 toilets
  • space for 6-8 people
  • Gitblit git server
  • Nexus maven repository

This is a learning experience for everyone,
