Demystifying the ember object model

Toran Billups @toranb

Are you curious what this Ember.Object thing is all about? How similar is it to a traditional javascript object anyway? During this 15 minute talk I’ll show how the basic ember object is put together and how to take advantage of its more classicial inheritance paradigm. All this and tests!

Intro to gulp

Brandon Williams @williamsbdev

Here is a gentle introduction to Gulp and a brief comparison of Gulp and Grunt. A brief explanation of why all web developers should be using at least one of these two tools for all their projects.

Lets talk about real time web applications!

Joel Taddei @taddeimania

In this 25 minute run down we will delve into the library and how you can get up and running with it in minutes. The server / client relationship will be demystified, we will squash the optimistic rendering paradigm, and chances are you will be ready to implement your own chat room protocol that’s on par with IRC.

Okay so maybe that may be a bit ambitious, but i’ve been playing with a lot lately and i’d like to share my experiences with my favorite community in Des Moines!

Who knows, you may even get some JS related stickers just for showing up!
