    Great talks! Components are very promising!

    Good talks and very cohesive and instructive.

    Great talks all around! Very many aha! moments for me. And such elegant code examples. Really demonstrated conceptually the value of Ember components. Glad to have given my first lightening talk in such illustrious company.

    I don't have any slides but here is the github if anyone interested. Will definitely to to add to it as I find time. https://github.com/eccegordo/eak-sublime-text-snippets

    Apologies. Annoying meetup.com 1,000 character limit on posts forced me to breakup my meetup summary into 3 pieces below. And they're in reverse order. Doh. So please start with third one (below) first for best UX (user experience :-).

    Finally, Eric Selden wrapped up with his talk on "Templateless Components" or how to use components to (e.g.) wrap 3P libraries and display stuff via HTML tags but without templates (hope I got that right). What a great complement to @machty's talk. Eric gave three quick demos, one showing a dynamic RGB square of color using HTML tag off a component (I think), another using an SVG (e.g., from PhotoShop/Illustrator) "dab" vector shape of color --- both from self-contained components lacking templates. For the finale, Eric showed off a jQuery component for draggable lists --- again in a templateless component. All three examples highlighted Ember Components for composing 3P libraries into Ember workflows in self-contained, reusable fashion.

    I believe the talks were all videoed, and very worthwhile. While the evening was lengthy (7PM to 9:30PM), all the talks were worthwhile, and the focus on Ember Components was eye-opening and wonderful.

    Thx: Auth0, UrbanSpoon, org'rs & speakers.

    Then Gordon Potter shared his discovery of Sublime Text's powerful snippet engine, and how to use that for EmberJS snippets and components.

    @machty then returned with his main talk: "Ember Components". Very enlightening, generous amounts of code, including some jsbin.com examples and good Q&A. All of the ember core team members seem to be great coders and presenters! The main strength of Ember Components is their self-contained nature and isolation from the outside world. But Alex also showed us the protocol to get data into a component, and actions out of a component. And he highlighted goals (composability, reusability, shareability), strengths (self-contained, isolated, reusability), and unsolved issues (shareability, distribution). Very powerful stuff with plenty of code, meat, and value. @machty is passionate about components, so I think Ember Components will be even more powerful in a year's time.

    Gordon, Dave, and Kristofer spoiled us again. @machty was kind enough to hoof it up to Seattle to present to us! Big thank you!

    The lightning talks started with Eugenio Pace @authzero (and this evening's sponsor, thx for food/drink/etc) telling us about the "single sign on made simple" with their cloud http://auth0.com service. Dave Laird then gave a lightning demo showing (briefly) EmberJS proof of concept. Slick stuff. And Eugenio generously offered a promo for members for their basic level of service.

    Then @machty (Alex Matchneer) showed us his latest and greatest, "nested loading routes", which are (optional) routes that by convention display only if/while a promise'd route is being fulfilled, and err out elegantly in case of errors. Not quite ready for prime time... but promised for upcoming release (1.1'ish?).

    Details? Should we come hungry, or sated?

      Food and drink will be provided!

    Hello! Looking forward to coming out and meeting everyone; I'm going to be presenting on Ember Components, why they are rad, and the arc they're likely to take in the near future if I have my way. Feel free to post some questions/curiosities here ahead of time that I can make sure to incorporate into the talk.

    See you soon!
