On this day in 1984 the Apple Macintosh was introduced to the world in a televised ad during Super Bowl XVIII, and the GUI and mouse revolution had begun.

Sometimes revolutions come with version numbers. The new web language Dart, for example, has been updated to version 1.0 (and now 1.1), and so has our book, Dart for Hipsters. It's possible that Dart is now for Hipsters and Everyone Else as well, Check it out, in print and shipping, at pragprog.com/book/csdart.

And did you know we have audio books? See below for details.

Dart for Hipsters

Dart 1.0 has arrived and Dart for Hipsters has you covered! Every chapter has been painstakingly reviewed and updated to work with the latest version of this exciting new language. But don't worry, the book still retains the quick dive approach to writing useful code starting on page 1. It also continues to explore the language by refactoring an application to make the most effective use of Dart's myriad of features: OOP, real libraries and packages, testing, and so much more! Along the way, we'll cover everything you need to know about writing beautiful, maintainable application code that just works™ in all modern browsers.

With the 1.0 release, it may be time to rename the book Dart for Hipsters and Everyone Else!

Now in print and shipping from pragprog.com/book/csdart. If you've already purchased this title, you'll receive these updates for free.
