    If you are an ActionScript3 developer you will like Dart a lot. Both languages are pretty similar and Dart will feel much more logical compared to JavaScript. If you would like to use you Flash skills in this new HTML5 environment, check out this port of the Flash API to HTML5 and Dart: - the library, the samples and the demo game are all open source (github).
