We're back! This next edition of the SF Ember meetup is a special one... and not technically in SF, to be fair :p We'll be meeting in Mountain View this time, at Addepar HQ.
Meeting in MV means a whole slew of new people can make it, and more importantly, that we've got a lot more room to get comfy. The folks at Addepar are providing a fantastic meetup space, some great content, food and drinks. And not just *any* food and drinks...
The October Ember Meetup will be a tad more wonderful than our usual pizza and beer (not that that isn't fantastic, ahem); Addepar has scheduled Chairman Bao and Jaime's Tacos food trucks, which we know our locals love. And yes. There will of course be beer.
Even if you're up in SF, it'll definitely be worth the trip (and let's try and carpool!). Now let's dig into the content...
Beginner / Intermediate Talk
by Anthony Sherbondy
Addepar creates software for people that analyze and report on the most complex financial networks in the world. In May, our company decided to migrate a significant portion of our financial storytelling product from a desktop client to the web. Similar to today, it was not clear which web UI framework would be the best choice for us and after exploring the options available at the time we ultimately chose Ember. In this talk, I will overview our current product and why the months of development to get here has solidified Ember as the right choice for our application. I will also dive into some basic code to help guide people on what parts of Ember I think are awesome for serious application development. I hope that this talk will be useful for people facing the same choice we found ourselves in a few months ago and are looking for more information to inform their decision.
Intermediate / Advanced Talk
Tom Dale and Yehuda Katz are members of the Ember core team, and very serious gentlemen :p If you've been to a past meetup you've likely heard from one or both. We promise they're still just as entertaining.
In this talk, Tom will drop some rapid-fire knowledge bombs about Ember Data–what it is, where it's at currently, and what's coming in the pipeline.
Yehuda will give an update on the new router API.
Addepar is building the first modern platform for the financial industry. We connect thousands of disparate sources of data and empower users to make meaningful decisions with that data. This mission requires us to tackle cutting edge UI problems everyday and Ember has been a fantastic tool for managing our expanding client code complexity.
