In this session, we'll investigate a few strategies for integrating browser features like WebSockets as well as third-party libraries into our ember-cli applications. We'll look at how to structure an application using standalone controllers, initializer objects, and services. Our example application will be a real-time chat application that uses WebSockets to push notification to connect clients. We'll build the application with native WebSockets and talk about how to leverage external libraries like Socket.io and Faye.
One overarching theme in the Ember.js philosophy is to put developers on a path to success, primarily this is done by making that path have the lowest resistance.
On several fronts this pattern has been quite successful, but on one important front we fall short, performance. This is the result of framework and run-time misalignment. This talk describes how we as a community can solve this problem in our apps and the framework.
Ember allows us to design highly adaptive, extendable, and fast web apps, but with those possibilities comes greater responsibility. Successfully leveraging the characteristics that make the technology worth while requires a myriad of methods, principles, and patterns that aren’t readily obvious to those breaking into single page application design. In this talk I’ll hone in on those requirements with relevant examples and give the audience a starting point to make their next Ember.js product design successful.
In this session, we will look at several unconventional things you can do with Ember.js and Ember Data. We will be breathing new life into the Hacker News website via a chrome extension. We will be injecting code into the live website, parsing HTML pages into JSON feeds that Ember Data understands, all while maintaining the existing URL mapping scheme so that our users can continue to share and tweet URLs with the rest of the Interwebs.
My team and I decided to invest in making our deployments awesome. When I told people about our approach, the community responded with excitement and new OSS implementations.
This talk will show you how to make your team’s deployments delightful and empowering instead of slow, clumsy and frustrating. I'll take you through the key concepts and show you the open source tools that are now available.
In the dark ages of web development, designing a beautiful user experience meant having to constantly fight with the DOM to get it to do what you want, when you want. With Ember, we no longer have to struggle with managing DOM state, and we are free to put the user experience first with reactive UI.
In this talk, we'll discuss the ways in which Ember makes it easy to build delightful and reactive user experiences, and how you can build reusable components that even non-technical designers can learn to use. Learn about the thoughtful touches and interactions you can add to an Ember app.
Monolithic server-side applications are on the way out - but what does this mean for our frontend code? A world of independent backend services creates unique challenges for internal frontend development: How can teams share code? Streamline deployments? Test and integrate their code with existing backend systems?
This talk will discuss how Ember's conventions and tooling can bring consistency, discipline and sanity to a company's frontend infrastructure.
Ember's declarative object model and data-binding make it an excellent fit for building data visualizations that respond to change. This talk presents two ways to think about building dynamic SVG visualizations in Ember in the context of Hadley Wickham's The Grammar of Graphics. Along the way various subjects will be discussed, including code reuse and composition with Ember components and D3, imperative vs. declarative style tradeoffs, and tips and tricks for making visualizations easy to build and use.
Are you writing software that can survive a rigorous refactor? Would a well written suite of tests make you feel more confident as you iterate? How do you get feedback as you add new features or fix a bug?
Join me for an intense 25 minute live coding session where I build an ember application from the ground up test-first with nothing but the terminal and my favorite text editor! I'll share some of the tribal knowledge about what makes a great unit or functional test and how you decide to write one over the other.
