# "Intro to Ember.js Octane and Editions" by Robert Jackson
Robert Jackson (best known from....all the Ember things!) will be flying in from the east coast to talk with us about the new features coming up in the Octane edition of Ember, and take some time to answer any questions you might have about all these cool new features.
It'll be a great chance to hear about the ways Ember is shipping things like angle bracket and template-only components, template imports, native JS classes, and much more- all without breaking backwards compatibility!
This is a great way to get a preview of what's coming - especially if you haven't yet bought a ticket for EmberConf 2019!
