Building optimising compiler for Dart

In early 2012 we started working on a completely new compilation pipeline for the already mature Dart virtual machine. Dart designates itself as a class-based, object-oriented language with lexical scoping, closures, and optional static typing. But what does this mean for the JIT compiler? This talk tries to show how Dart's language features affected design of the compilation pipeline and how our experience with V8 JavaScript engine influenced our decisions.
