June 2014 Meetup

Same basic formula: good people, good food, good talks. We've got three great new talks from new speakers—join us!

Schedule

6:30pm - 7:00pm: Check-In, Networking and Food 
7:00pm - 7:25pm: Michael Kaiser-Nyman 
7:25pm - 7:40pm: Steven Lindberg

Program

We'll hear from Michael Kaiser-Nyman on the topic of teaching Ember. He'll distill his experience teaching Ember to his students into some useful reusable lessons about pitching Ember to your friends and coworkers.

Next Steven Lindberg will talk about "Nested JSON responses and Ember Data". This will focus on exploring support for models with nested object attributes in Ember Data, with a special emphasis on model state.

Last but not least, Rocky Neurock will present his talk "Return Typeof Talk". Knowing the different types in JavaScript isn't a hard thing to master but developing a deeper understanding of types can reveal new design patterns, including some common patterns found in Ember and Handlebars.

If you or your company would be up for sponsoring, we can use all the help we can get (especially if we want to keep up the good-food trend!). Meetup sponsorships can be just a few hundred dollars, and make a tremendous difference. Please reach out!

We've got plenty of room, but RSVPs via Meetup ARE required. 

See you soon...

    If you were waiting on video of the presentations, I am sorry to inform you that I failed to capture the audio, so the videos are essentially useless. So sorry. Will try to get it right next time.

    Sorry that I have to miss it. Will be there next time.
    Michael is great at making programming concepts simpler to learn.. Does this group post slides or videos of past meetups? That would be a useful resource. (I would help do that if needed)

      Peggy, sorry to say that I made a mistake while recording the presentations and failed to capture audio, so the videos are pretty much useless. So sorry about that. :-(

    Hey all, Marty Nelson pointed out a mistake in my talk where I stated that functions were passed by value. Marty clarified that they are actually passed by reference so I updated my slides to reflect. Sorry for the confusion and thanks, Marty!

    Here's the link to my slides: http://slides.com/rockyneurock/return-typeof-talk/#/. Thanks again, all!

      You can see the basic object-like nature of functions here: http://jsfiddle.net/H...­. What you did was assign a new value (that was a function) to the apiSuccess property of App.Index. Basically
      var foo = {}
      foo.bar = function(){ console.log('origin­al')}
      var base = foo.bar
      foo.bar = function(){
      console.log('new'­)
      base()
      } foo.bar() // new original

      Hey Marty, thanks for the replies, very good catch on this one! I totally overlooked this. I'll update the slide with the pass by value/reference table to reflect. Thanks again!
