Hackfest at the Beach

  • Apr 26, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

In this meeting, we'll hook the Ember Blog app we completed at our last meeting to a web API application we'll build.

For those attending, you will need to have accomplished the following beforehand:

• Watch AND DO the steps in Tom Dale's video at the beginning of the Ember Guides; you will learn much more by doing than by just watching.  Do the exercise on the laptop you plan to bring to the hackfest in the next step.

• Bring a laptop capable of both doing programming in EmberJS AND Google Hangout.  We use Hangout around the table to send links and other info among us; it is also great for sharing instructional videos when needed.

There will be donuts and coffee/tea/filtered water.

As promised, here are the derails for the meeting on April 26:

• We'll be reorganizing our sample bloggr into an Ember-CLI project.  This will set up much of the infrastructure for cutting-edge Ember JS development, including integration w/ any number of backends.

• If there is time, we'll start work on a simple Rails API backend to support the bloggr project.

I recommend that if you've finished completing the bloggr program this week, that you read about Ember-CLI and broccoli.

Finally, all the attendance slots are filled and there is now at least one person on the waiting list.  So, if for whatever reason you are enrolled but know you can't make it, please change your attendance so that we can include people on the wait list.

Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday!  Again, for those who are interested, we'll be eating at an excellent AND reasonably-priced Mexican restaurant afterwards.

    We've started a Google Plus Hangout, Ember-SC-Hackers for this group. Please request to join if you'd be interested.

    Ran into technical difficulties (npm hell) but lots got accomplished anyways. Gonna be a fun run.

    I think we just picked an inopportune time to clone the ember-cli repo, as I just ran through Scott's instructions without any issue: http://cl.ly/image/1y160x2p3Q1i

      Yes, congrats to both of you. I am updating the README to be able to clone from a "known-good" commit in case this happens again.

    I'm totally burned out from railsconf and overslept. I will probably head down in about an hour.

      No problem. We've started but instructions are written so you won't have any problems participating (or catching up).

    I realized that, since we share a common Hangout page on our laptops, there's no real requirement for everyone to be seated around the table.

    Hence, I've opened the number of attendees. If someone else is working with you on this, get them signed up.
