This was my third meet-up with this community. First two times were the original "Sproutcore SF Meetup" over a year ago in winter 2010.
Two of the three presenters (the first two) gave talks full of inaccurate commentary & assumptions, bad code examples (some profound mistakes), & no actual demos, to a room full of mixed company including many beginners. This set a bad tone, as attendees who were already lost in the new Ember world were mislead & confused further.
The third presentation by Ember.js contributor Eric Bryn was fantastic. (Although, I'm sick of the ToDo apps which anyone can try out on GitHub.) His code examples followed good practices, and his demo of a "D3 on Ember" data visualization tool wowed the room. To bad the organizer's put Eric's "intro" presentation last.
Ember is an amazing framework to build responsive, event-driven web UI's. Let's see some fresh, inspiring presentations & demos.

Will the intro say anything about the differences with SproutCore 1? I had SproutCore working with Firebug & Illuminations and I'm curious how different it is with Ember.js. I'd like to add Ember support in my next version. (Intro to Illuminations using ExtJS as an example is here: http://www.illuminations-for-de...). Thanks.
