SPLASH 2011: Gilad Bracha - Dart, Newspeak, and More

37 minutes, 0 seconds

It's always a pleasure to get the chance to chat with Gilad Bracha. So, whenever we can, we do. We've had Gilad on C9 quite a few times over the years and the conversations are always enlightening and educational. Recently, Gilad joined Google and is now working on the Dart programming language with long-time colleague (and former co-worker) Lars Bak

Of course we had to ask Gilad about Dart (just the technical stuff, though - like Dart's type system, concurrency model(actor-based "isolates"), future etc...).

Of course, Dart has to compile to JavaScript. So how did this requirement impact Dart's design? Certainly it did, right?

We also get an update on the status of Gilad's very own Newspeak language. What's going on with Newspeak now that he works on Dart full time?

Thanks for coming on C9, Gilad! Always a pleasure.

Recently, Channel 9 was invited to attend the great
SPLASH conference. What is SPLASH? Systems, Programming, Languages and Applications: Software for Humanity. SPLASH is an annual conference that embraces all aspects of software construction and delivery, and that joins all factions of programming technologies. Since 2010 SPLASH is the umbrella for OOPSLA and Onward! [source=splashcon.org]

A big thanks to the SPLASH event organizers for inviting me and my camera to engage some key computer scientists and engineers in geeky, fun conversation! SPLASH is a great event! I learned a ton and met many amazing computer scientists and students.
