March 2014 Meetup

We haven't been to Pivotal Labs since they hosted our first ever Meetup in February of 2012: thanks so much for inviting us back! The meetup will take place on Tuesday, March 18th, and you DO need to RSVP to attend this event.



6:30pm - 7:00pm: Check-In, Networking and Food
7:00pm - 7:30pm: An Introductory Look at Ember Array Computed Properties, by David Hamilton
7:30pm - 7:40pm: Break
7:40pm - 8:10pm: Zone.js, by Brian Ford
8:10pm - 8:40pm: Networking



An Introductory Look at Ember Array Computed Properties, by David Hamilton

Computed properties are an important feature for any Ember.js developer to master.  This talk offers an overview of a particular subset of computed properties: array computed properties, which allow for partial recomputation. This is the feature that saves, for instance, `Ember.computed.filterBy` from having to completely recompute the filtered array when an item is added to its dependent array.

Zone.js, by Brian Ford

"Zone.js" is a new micro-library that can give you insights into async control flow in JavaScript apps. Brian will be talking about what it does, and how users can use it to solve everyday problems in developing, profiling, and debugging JS apps.

    Hey everyone! We were at the meeting last week, but I just wanted to take a chance to mention it again. RetailNext, a big-data analytics provider for physical retail stores, is looking for an Ember developer to help us build out our brand new UI. Contact me if you are interested!

    Will the meeting be recorded?

    March 18, 2014

    • Leah S.

      Alas, we don't have the sponsors or funds for video recording just yet :( Hopefully one day!

      Hi Leah, I know someone that might give us a hand with that. I'll reach out and see how that would work.

    Come talk to me if you want to hack on Ember and you'd like to be interviewed on Ember Hot Seat. All skill levels are welcome. [masked]

  • Brian M.

    Hi all, in case you missed it I'm actively trying to find some experienced Ember/Rails folks to join our growing team at CheckMate. We are in downtown SF on Market St and currently have about 12 people working to modernize hotel checkins. If you're interested you can find me on twitter at @bdmac97. Thanks!

  • Erik B.

    Hey folks! As I mentioned during the announcements, fellow Ember.js core team member Trek Glowacki and I are doing beginner and advanced training sessions here in SF and also in NYC and Chicago. Please let us know if you're interested:

  • Roni M.

    Michael P and I will be arriving between 6:40 and 6:50. This is our first meetup with this group. We are currently driving, hope to see you then thank you.

  • Nick B.

    Excited for the talks tonight!
    Also, Practice Fusion is looking to hire talented ember developers :) Happy to talk to everyone in person tonight!

  • Leah S.

    Howdy folks! Couple of last minute points: * Turns out we need a bit more staff than we knew about before showing up :p If you can show up by 6 and lend a hand, please ping me! Leah at Emberjs or @wifelette. * We'll be on the 5th floor, but there's *another* Meetup going on in the building (something about Security). Make sure you're headed to the right place. The staff currently in the lobby are part of the other meetup and don't know about our group.

    * The elevator locks at 6pm, so if you show up too late and we're not manning the lobby anymore, you'll need to reach out to someone to get let up. I'll be monitoring Meetup comments and Twitter (@wifelette) for pleas for help :)

    See you all soon!

    Is there a secure bicycle parking at the Pivotal Labs office?

    March 18, 2014

    • Kait O.

      Unfortunately there isn't. The closest secure parking would be in the 5th and Mission parking garage, where they have bike lockers.

  • Ward G.

    Crazy! 175 attending and there is a wait list. Any chance people that know they are def not going to attend can remove themselves from the list to make room for those of us on the wait list?

    1 · March 17, 2014

    • Leah S.

      We'll send an email saying just that first thing tomorrow morning, and hopefully get updated RSVPs from anyone with last minute issues :)

      March 17, 2014

    • Ward G.

      Thanks Leah. Crossing my fingers!

      March 18, 2014

  • Bianca G.

    Would this meet-up be useful for web developers who come from a backbone/angular background or is it assumed that the audience will have some experience with ember?

    1 · March 12, 2014

    • Levi M.

      The Ember meetups have a good balance of introduction and advanced discussions. Definitely worth going if you're curious about the framework.

      1 · March 12, 2014

    • Leah S.

      What Levi said :D The content level definitely varies based on the specific speaker, but we encourage one topic of each experience level for each meetup.
