Program

Responsive Templates, by Rocky Neurock

One tool in the Responsive Design belt involves making decisions, at the template level, for different devices/media. Ember makes it extremely easy to do this in Handlebars. Rocky will show some simple examples.

Coding More Effectively Through Conventions, by Evan Rowe

Terms like "convention over configuration" and "coding standards" are thrown around often in the development world, but not much time is dedicated to discussing why these things matter, and how they can be useful. We'll take a look at the importance of these principles, and how you can put them to work to improve the quality and efficiency of your (and your team's) code.
