November: Ember.js with Joe Fiorini

Please welcome Joe Fiorini as he travels from Cincinnati to speak to our group!  Also, our food sponsor (Beacon Hill) will be giving away an iPad Mini!  You must be present to win. 

Abstract

Let's face it. Writing large JavaScript apps is not easy. If you've ever used a lightweight MVC framework, you've likely felt more like a plumber than a developer. You've probably worked with UI code that is more wiring and cleanup than business logic. Ember abstracts away the hardest parts of managing mass amounts of JavaScript through its opinionated convention-over-configuration approach. In this talk, you'll learn how we saved time and energy by switching from Backbone to Ember.js. I'll explain how we've harnessed these conventions in a large real-time monitoring application to write code that is easier to understand. You'll come away from this talk with a richer understanding of how you and your team can stop being plumbers and build better rich javascript applications.

    This should be good ... Ember seems promising and less "magic" than Angular...

    We have confirmed that we can use Arbor Networks for this meeting, so I have bumped the RSVP count to 100. We can re-evaluate if it gets closer.
