Program

Testing an Ember App, from the Guides to the Real World, by Lindsey Smith

Lindsey's talk will run through Ember's testing utilities and ember-qunit to get the basics of testing. Next, he'll discover and work through some pain points that surface when testing a real Ember application.

A History of Time: Why JavaScript Dates are a Mess, Tim Wood

Tim’s talk will cover some of the technical debt acquired over the last 3 millennia concerning the measurement and representation of time. Zero-indexed months in JavaScript will seem like a trivial problem by comparison.
