Join us in downtown Austin! This month's meetup will be hosted at the Galvanize (http://www.galvanize.com/campuses/austin-2nd-street-district/) campus in the 2nd street district.

There will be plenty of food, drinks and enlightenment. We'll be migrating over to the Gingerman (http://thegingerman.com/austin/) for an informal social event after the night's talks. This month's lineup is:

Isaac Lee - Use D3 with Ember

Despite the plethora of wrapper addons that exist, using D3 with Ember isn't exactly straightforward. Isaac will share his experiences of using Ember and D3 and answer questions on what it's like to learn both.

Isaac is a frontend developer at Identity Automation and a newcomer to Ember.

Chris Krycho - TypeScript and Ember.js: Why and How?

A three part look at Ember.js and TypeSript today: (1) What are the benefits to me as an Ember developer for using TypeScript? (2) What are the tradeoffs if I adopt TypeScript? (3) Where are things going from here?

Chris is a senior software engineer at Olo, working to make ordering food online more awesome. Over the last year, he's led the charge on building ember-cli-typescript, writing types for Ember ecosystem libraries, and blogging an absurd amount on how to use TypeScript effectively in Ember apps. He also hosts the New Rustacean podcast, helping people learn Rust.

Don't forget to thank our wonderful sponsors!


We'd like to give a big hug to our venue sponsor, Galvanize (http://www.galvanize.com/campuses/austin-2nd-street-district/), for hooking us up with a super sweet downtown location. We're incredibly excited about the space!

There is a paid garage in the Galvanize building that has reasonable prices after hours. We also recommend taking public transit, looking for street parking, parking in the surface lot at Guadalupe and 3rd or using the City Hall or Violet Crown parking garages.

How to find us in the Galvanize building

Take the elevator to the second floor to check in at the front desk. They will direct you to the correct lecture space.

We'd love to hear from you!
