Program

Sensible Broccoli
by Mark Avery

Broccoli is an integral and powerful part of ember-cli, but documentation and recent best practices can be hard to come by. By stepping through my rewrite of `ember-component-css`, we'll uncover the basics of broccoli, writing custom plugins, persistent outputs, and how to integrate these into ember-cli.

Ambitious Design in the Age of Ambitious Web Apps
by Chris Salvi

Far too often we as developers/engineers strive to create ambitious apps with design being an afterthought in the ideation process. My discussion tonight is to argue for a world in which we can strive for ambition in both engineering and design, to move away from blatant aesthetic plagiarism and to return to a sense of creativity within the art of structuring a site.

The Benefits, Challenges and Tricks of Accessing Your Information Without Bogging Down Your App
by Kyle Mellander

What do you do when you have a relationship with 1000+ related items? How do you handle complex relationships from the back-end? Let's face it, accessing data on the front-end is very different from the back-end. It requires us to shift our thinking of how we want our data to be structured. We'll look at how Ember natively handles those relationships and what you can do to find solutions for those complex data situations.
