### Dart is an application programming language that’s easy to learn, easy to scale, and deployable everywhere.

### Google depends on Dart to make very large apps.

# Core goals

Dart is an ambitious, long-term project. These are the core goals that drive our design decisions.

## Provide a solid foundation of libraries and tools

A programming language is nothing without its core libraries and tools. We call it *batteries included*. Dart’s batteries have been powering very large apps for years now.

## Make common programming tasks easy

Application programming comes with a set of common problems and common errors. Dart is designed to make those problems easier to tackle, and errors easier to catch. This is why we have `async/await`

, generators, string interpolation, earlier error detection and much more.

## Don’t surprise the programmer

There should be a direct correspondence between what you type and what’s going to happen. Magic (automatic type coercion, hoisting, “helper” globals, …) doesn’t mix well with large apps.

## Be the stable, pragmatic solution for real apps

Dart might seem boring to some. We prefer the terms *productive* and *stable*. We work closely with our core customers—the developers who build large applications with Dart—to make sure we’re here for the long run.
