October Ember Meetup

  • Oct 15, 2013 · 6:30 PM

The next Ember.js meetup will take place on Tuesday, October 15th. A big thank you to our friends at Blurb for hosting and providing drinks and snacks! You DO need to RSVP to attend this event.

You'll hear from some great San Franciscan Ember developers, while enjoying a great opportunity to mingle with the best and brightest local Ember folk. See you all there...



6:30pm - 7:00pm: Check-In, Networking and Food
7:00pm - 7:30pm: eBook & Ember (Beginner) by Estella Madison
7:30pm - 7:40pm: Break
7:40pm - 8:10pm: Ember and Firebase Bindings by Andrew Lee
8:10pm - 8:40pm: Networking



Beginner Talk by Estella Madison

Estella is a front-end engineer at Blurb. She started working with SproutCore two years ago and moved onto Ember as soon as it was released. She's lucky enough to work with Ember almost daily for Blurb's online ebook editor.

Blurb built their online ebook editor using Ember. She'll discuss some of their struggles, how they resolved them, debugging techniques, and best practices. She'll also touch on how else they want to use Ember.

Firebase Bindings and Ember, by Andrew Lee

The talk will focus on the soon-to-be-released Firebase bindings. The bindings will make it easy to build real-time applications with Firebase and Ember without without writing back-end code or setting up servers.

Andrew has extensive experience building performant real-time software. He studied Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. He previously founded two startups and worked for Adobe, Seagate, and Green Hills Software.

      Regarding Blurb's Ember app and Ryan's comment above, we have a "create ebook from scratch" option which is not currently linked to from our website. You can access it @­

      This is the fastest way to try out the app.

    This talk by Yehuda came up in conversation, and I think others would enjoy it. It is great for clearing up some confusion about different definitions of M, V, and C.

    I am looking forward to meeting people who are using the Rails 4 Cajun Prime Stack ("Prime" Stack <>; with Ember.js). If that's what you're doing, please introduce yourself.
