About Me, Dart and everything

Hi all Dartisans, this my starter site for what will hopefully become a fuller dive into the Dartiverse.


I've been in the Dartiverse since the start of Dart 1.0, my first published package, xml2json, was back in September 2013. I've seen a few changes here and there and picked up a lot of Dart knowledge along the way. I mainly stay on the server side of things in the comfort of the VM though I have a few both server and web packages. I've not yet had a serious look at Flutter, mainly because I don't really do web/app development but it is becoming insanely popular so I might one day have a dabble.


The advent of Dart 2.6 has really changed the game for me as it brings two things I sorely needed, FFI and Dart2Native. Using these tools I can wrap any native library of my choice and when testing is complete just turn the Dart program into a native exe for deployment to the platform, if this isn't a killer feature I don't know what is!


You can mail me at steve.hamblett@linux.com on any Dart topics, especially server side development.


I have a particular interest in using Dart in the IOT world, a write up for starter project using Google's IOT-Core cloud platform is here, however I have many years knowledge of software development in high end industrial SCADA and Plant Management and Control systems, interfacing to devices/sensors is all part and parcel of this so feel free to ping me ony any questions you may have in this area, Dart related or not.


Happy Darting!

Still hacking away and maintaining my numerous packages, hopefully I will have more time to put this on a more formal footing soon.
