Full Stack Dart

Dart emerged from Google a little after Go, as "a client-optimized language for fast apps on any platform”. It has recently surged in popularity as the language behind the Flutter framework for Android, iOS, Desktop and Web apps. Cloud providers are now positioning themselves to support ‘full stack Dart’ where Flutter developers can use the same language to build the services behind their apps. Dart’s support for ahead-of-time (AOT) compilation means that it can create lightweight binaries that start quickly, making it a good fit for Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) environments.
