Burning Down the Bike Shed with JSON API, by Alex Johnson

JSON API reached version 1.0 on March 29th! Let's take a look at the spec, discuss the progress of Ember Data support, and see how it might some day all hook together.

Pretender and Acceptance Testing, by Michael Lange

We have 500+ acceptance tests for our ember.js app, and we have learned a lot along the way. Learn about the strategies we use when testing intricate user behavior that results in a lot of asynchronous actions and data fetching. We aim to make tests easy to read and easy to write. For many reasons, including browsers and ember, this is a tough problem-space.
