Hey Emberists!

Since we got all nostalgic, we'll be doing a one-off Toronto Ember at Pharmacy Bar ( on Thursday April 2nd, starting at 6:30pm. Unspace ( be providing some comped goodies.

This month we're being treated to visiting guest Hugh Francis (, delivering his talk "Agile Design with Ember JS: Leveraging Ember's predictable view hierarchy for fast and extensible design iteration".

Jeff Jewiss ( Precision Nutrition will be doling out the following wisdom as well:

Babel and ember-cli have given us the power to use ES6 features in Ember today, and it's somehow made working on Ember applications even more enjoyable. I'd like to bring that level of excitement to CSS. This talk will cover how Postcss and ember-cli allow us to use CSS4 features today, and build a modular toolchain that allows for things like: importing css from node modules, automatically adding vendor prefixes, and linting your components according to a BEM naming convention.

And - if the crick don't rise - Justin Giancola ( of Precision Nutrition ( will finally be delivering his lightning talk on using redis as a proxy when developing ember applications.

Just as a friendly reminder, we'd also love for you to mark April 8th off in your calendars for the next Ember Project Night, which will be hosted with love (and pizza!) by Mina Smart ( and the team at TheScore ( starting at 6:30pm. It loosely follows the OpenHack format, which you can read more about here:
