About the Author:

Dzenan Ridjanovic is a university professor who is planning, in his early retirement, to focus on the development of web applications with Dart, HTML5, web components, and NoSQL databases. Dzenan also wrote a book in 2009 under the Creative Commons License, called Spiral Development of Dynamic Web Applications: Using Modelibra and Wicket.

Ivo Balbaert is currently a Lecturer on Web Programming and Databases at CVO Antwerpen, a community college in Belgium. He received a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the University of Antwerp in 1986. From 2000 onwards, he switched to partly teaching and partly developing software. In 2012, he authored a book on the Go programming language, called The Way To Go, IUniverse.

Dart is an open source, class-based, optionally-typed programming language for building web applications created by Google. Dart targets a wide range of development scenarios, from a one-person project without much structure to a large-scale project needing formal types in the code to state programmer intent.


Dart will help readers learn how to build web games using HTML5, how to integrate audio and video into applications, and how to process and show data in HTML5 forms with Dart. The book also explores how web components fit together with HTML5 and how to apply them in business web applications.

This book is aimed at web developers. Readers interested in this book should have at least some knowledge of HTML and how web applications work. Some previous programming experience, preferably in a modern language such as C#, Java, Python, Ruby, or JavaScript, will also give readers a head start.
