After a successful first edition of EmberJS Hacker Hour version 2, we are pleased to announce a new session focusing on Ember.js application testing.
Ryan Toronto will be leading the presentation and live coding session. Ryan has been a programmer for 15 years and is currently freelancing in NYC working on various Rails, Node, and Ember.js applications. His blog is full of posts around the topic of Ember.js testing ( http://codingvalue.com/blog/ ).
For the session, Ryan has created a repo which contains testing examples: https://github.com/ryanto/emberjs-nyc-hacker-hours-testing. We encourage you to check it out and experiment with the code before the session so that you come up with questions.
A quick reminder of the motivation behind our new version of HH:
• We will publish a hands-on demo/exercise repository a week before the event: the intent is to propose a subject of discussion to our fellow embereños.
• We encourage you to dig into the demo and work on the exercises before the event so that you can get the best out of our hacker in residence during the meetup.
• We ask for a token $1 fee to secure your attendance. This is aimed to prevent people with no real intention to come to RSVP without thinking since we have a purposefully limited capacity for these types of events.
Of course, for those of you who have question outside of the scope of the demo, hackers in residence will be available to help you.
We welcome suggestions and comments as always.
