March Ember.js SF Meetup!

Hey everybody! You can mark your calendars for the second Ember.js meetup in San Francisco, Tuesday, March 27th! A big thank you to dotCloud for hosting this time.

This time, we'll be having two lightning talks and, by popular request, a longer talk giving in introduction to Ember for people who are exploring the framework for the first time.

Comparing Ember.js and jQuery in the same app

Yusuf Simonson

At dotCloud, we wanted to design a web app that allows users to interact with a SQL database. We created two versions of the web app: one using Ember.js data, and one using vanilla jQuery.This allowed us to compare the versions and see where Ember.js data saved us effort, and where it could be improved. 

Racer.js as a model store for Ember

Joffrey Fuhrer

Using Ember-specific features, mixins and observers, we are able to make an efficient interface between an Ember Array (or any sort of custom collection implementing the Mutable Enumerable interface) or a single Ember Object and the racer model, with changes propagated two-way.

Introduction to Ember

Erik Bryn

Core team member Erik Bryn will give an overview of Ember for those who are considering the framework for the first time.

    This was my third meet-up with this community. First two times were the original "Sproutcore SF Meetup" over a year ago in winter 2010.

    Two of the three presenters (the first two) gave talks full of inaccurate commentary & assumptions, bad code examples (some profound mistakes), & no actual demos, to a room full of mixed company including many beginners. This set a bad tone, as attendees who were already lost in the new Ember world were mislead & confused further.

    The third presentation by Ember.js contributor Eric Bryn was fantastic. (Although, I'm sick of the ToDo apps which anyone can try out on GitHub.) His code examples followed good practices, and his demo of a "D3 on Ember" data visualization tool wowed the room. To bad the organizer's put Eric's "intro" presentation last.

    Ember is an amazing framework to build responsive, event-driven web UI's. Let's see some fresh, inspiring presentations & demos.

    If your time to you
    Is worth savin'
    Then you better start ember-js-n'
    Or you'll sink like a stone
    For the times they are a-changin'.

    Will the intro say anything about the differences with SproutCore 1? I had SproutCore working with Firebug & Illuminations and I'm curious how different it is with Ember.js. I'd like to add Ember support in my next version. (Intro to Illuminations using ExtJS as an example is here: Thanks.

    I would be happy to do a short presentation on Ember's To Do list app, and how to add features to it.

    Can do-- thanks for the feedback!

    Anyway you can alternate the events on different week days will be greatly appreciated. Some folks have specific days marked off (kids soccer games, etc), and having alternate week days means they can attend at least some of the meetups.
