Beginner Talk

By Steve Davie

Steve is a Software Engineer at Switchfly, a software-as-a-service company with a focus in travel related services. Prior to joining Switchfly, Steve was an engineer at Yammer, a globally recognized leader in enterprise social networking.

Although Steve has has broad experience throughout his career as an engineer, he is most passionate about JavaScript; he has been advocating its mainstream adoption long before its increase in popularity. Steve is also a designer and developer of applications, video-games, and even video-production.

Steve's talk, "From Prototype To Ember.js", will describe the pains and gains in moving from a legacy unstructured DOM query/ajax library to a well-structured and heavily opinionated framework.

Advanced Talk

by Tomhuda

Tom Dale and Yehuda Katz are members of the Ember core team, and very serious gentlemen :p If you've been to a past meetup you've likely heard from one or both. We promise they're still just as entertaining.

Tom and Yehuda will be on hand to talk about the recent updates and upgrades to Ember Data.
