"Let’s Build a Runloop" Workshop (EmberFest Preview)

Matthew Beale will hold a dry-run of his upcoming EmberFest workshop "Let's Build a Run Loop".

Spots are limited for this event, so please only RSVP if you plan to attend and participate.

To quote the abstract:

"The runloop remains one of the most mysterious features of Ember.js. Common misconceptions include the runloop being something that is always running in the background, and the runloop being a tool for scheduling asynchronous work. In this workshop, we will build a runloop from scratch. We will explore fundamental concepts of JavaScript, and the particulars of how Ember implements a runloop. You will walk away with a solid understanding of why Ember provides this feature, and how your applications can best leverage it."

What's you'll need: Laptop, git, Chrome, favorite editor, an eager mind!

      Howdy David, of course! You saw all the branches at https://github.com/201...­, and I've posted the slides to https://docs.google.co...­. They will be changing over the next few days as we update the workshop based on your feedback.

      We've discussed a "self-serve" version of this content that might be published after we get it honed down. Your feedback is really helpful, thanks for attending and I hope you learned something new!

      Thanks. It was eye opening, and is inspiring me to stop being so lazy and read more of the Ember source.

      A self-serve version sounds great. I'd love to see some test-driven workbooks as alternatives to things like the content from Code School, et al., particularly for some of the more opaque parts of the framework, like the runloop and router. It would fill a huge void in intermediate-advanced learning material.
