Join us in downtown Austin to learn Ember.js! There will be plenty of food, drinks, and enlightenment. We'll migrate over to Trifecta for an informal social event.

💬 This Month's Lineup

Ember.js is nearing its 8th anniversary 🎂, thanks to developers (like you!) who make time to contribute back to the community. We'll dedicate this month's Meetup to work on Ember-related issues.

If you haven't contributed to open-source before, now is the perfect time! Through pair programming, we'll be working on:

- how to find open-source projects using emberobserver.com
- how to fork a GitHub repo
- how to use `git fetch` to work with the latest code
- how to create a pull request
- how to review a pull request

Please bring a laptop with you! 💻

🙋 Where to Find Us

We meet at the Galvanize campus (http://www.galvanize.com/campuses/austin-2nd-street-district/) on 2nd street.

Take the elevator to the 2nd floor to check in at the front desk. The receptionist will direct you to the correct meeting room (**Paramount**).

🅿️ Parking

You can park in the Galvanize building for $5. We also recommend taking public transit, looking for street parking, parking in the surface lot at Guadalupe and 3rd, and using the City Hall or Violet Crown parking garages.
