Tools of the Trade

  • David Kopec


The tools of software development go beyond a language (Dart), an IDE (Dart Editor), and a runtime environment (Dartium). They generally include an entire toolchain sourced from a myriad of vendors to support each step in the development process. This includes managing versioning, debugging, and additional API support. In this chapter, you will learn about some of the most important nonlanguage tools used by modern developers. The software developers of just a couple decades ago lacked much of this now mission-critical infrastructure, which goes to show that software development is a constantly evolving field.
