First Ever Ember PDX Meetup!
Tilde Inc

Members of the Ember Core Team have recently moved to Portland, and we're really excited to get a local chapter of the Ember Meetup spun up and flourishing! We'll be meeting at the Tilde offices and mimicking the events we've been putting on San Francisco for years.

The basic formula: good people, good food, good talks. We'll generally have two talks, usually at different skill levels, some break and networking time, and other topically relevant things as they come up.

We'll be announcing the talks for this meetup shortly and opening registration on December 30th, but for now, save the date! We've got plenty of room, but RSVPs via Meetup ARE required.

Portland Ember Meetup
Tilde Inc

And we're back! Posting this mostly as a save-the-date, but we're already working on the next PDX Ember Meetup :) RSVPs will go out ~2 weeks before the event.

The basic formula: good people, good food, good talks. We'll generally have two talks, usually at different skill levels, some break and networking time, and other topically relevant things as they come up.

If you or someone you know would like to take a stab at presenting (either a full talk slot, or even a short lightning talk), please get in touch. We'd love to have you!

Similarly, if you or your company would be up for sponsoring, we can use all the help we can get (especially if we want to keep up the good-food trend!). Please reach out to discuss.

EmberJS May 2015 Meetup
Crowd Compass

We're mixing things up again this month :) The next Meetup will be hosted at the new CrowdCompass' office!

Registration will open at 12noon PST on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 and you DO need to RSVP to attend this event.

Schedule 6:30pm - 7:00pm: Check-In, Networking and Food
7:00pm - 7:15pm: Responsive Templates, by Rocky Neurock 7:15pm - 7:25pm: Break 7:25pm - 7:55pm: Coding More Effectively Through Conventions, by Evan Rowe
7:55pm - 8:15pm: Wrap-ups, Networking


Program

Responsive Templates, by Rocky Neurock

One tool in the Responsive Design belt involves making decisions, at the template level, for different devices/media. Ember makes it extremely easy to do this in Handlebars. Rocky will show some simple examples.

Coding More Effectively Through Conventions, by Evan Rowe

Terms like "convention over configuration" and "coding standards" are thrown around often in the development world, but not much time is dedicated to discussing why these things matter, and how they can be useful. We'll take a look at the importance of these principles, and how you can put them to work to improve the quality and efficiency of your (and your team's) code.

Program

Sensible Broccoli
by Mark Avery

Broccoli is an integral and powerful part of ember-cli, but documentation and recent best practices can be hard to come by. By stepping through my rewrite of ember-component-css, we'll uncover the basics of broccoli, writing custom plugins, persistent outputs, and how to integrate these into ember-cli.

Ambitious Design in the Age of Ambitious Web Apps
by Chris Salvi

Far too often we as developers/engineers strive to create ambitious apps with design being an afterthought in the ideation process. My discussion tonight is to argue for a world in which we can strive for ambition in both engineering and design, to move away from blatant aesthetic plagiarism and to return to a sense of creativity within the art of structuring a site.

The Benefits, Challenges and Tricks of Accessing Your Information Without Bogging Down Your App by Kyle Mellander

What do you do when you have a relationship with 1000+ related items? How do you handle complex relationships from the back-end? Let's face it, accessing data on the front-end is very different from the back-end. It requires us to shift our thinking of how we want our data to be structured. We'll look at how Ember natively handles those relationships and what you can do to find solutions for those complex data situations.
