Practical Web Workers
By Mukund Lakshman

HTML5 web workers unlocks a new class of multithreaded JavaScript applications. It's still unclear how Ember will use them long-term, but what if you don't want to wait? I'll take you through how I integrated web workers to improve client-side search performance in an Ember application and offer a general architecture that you can pick up and use today.

Security-Conscious Ember
By Nathan Hammond

What if I told you that you can't trust anybody? Your server, your users, their browsers, and the network are all conspiring against you with the goal of being able to exfiltrate your user's data. Trusting nobody might make it a little difficult to build your application! We'll walk through some of the typical security concerns that Ember protects you from out of the box, all of Ember's historical vulnerabilities, and common pitfalls to avoid which can result in cross-site-scripting, phishing, or other vulnerabilities.

Q&A with Core Team Member Robert Jackson
Emcee'd by Organizer Bear Douglas
