From Legacy to MVC - Moving from an old-school jQuery App to EmberJS by Miguel Madero

In this presentation Miguel will share some of his recent experiences of gradually, moving from a large jquery entangled code base to a nice, tested Ember app that is easier to maintain, testable, with more features, less bugs, faster and pleasure to work with. Some of the topics to cover are:

- Selling the idea
- Approach: full re-write, hybrid and  gradual
- Tips for hybrid applications. 
- Testing
- Features like drag and drop, infinite scroll, modals, scrolling and data synchronization
- Benefits for the business, our users and the dev team
- Training ramp and adoption curve

ES6 Generators by Erin Swenson-Healey

While the JavaScript event loop and asynchronous callbacks provide a powerful, easy-to-understand concurrency model - writing applications in continuation-passing style introduces problems of legibility, exception management, and composability. With the introduction of generators in the ECMAScript 6 Draft Specification, programmers can continue to leverage the power of the single-threaded event loop while writing expressive, simple code in a direct, top-down style.
