Running in "checked mode" is recommended for development and testing. Dart programs by default run in "production mode", which runs with all dynamic type assertions turned off. This is the default mode because it currently is the fastest way to run a Dart program. Deployment targets
Dart is designed to run in modern web browsers, either directly inside a Dart virtual machine...
