The Saturday Symposium

Gladstone Hotel, Toronto

Training Workshop

$250, includes admission to afternoon symposium

The runloop remains one of the most mysterious features of Ember.js. Common misconceptions include the runloop being something that is always running in the background and the runloop being a tool for scheduling asynchronous work.

In this workshop, we will build a runloop from scratch in a use-case and test-driven manner. We will explore fundamental concepts of JavaScript and the particulars of how a runloop is implemented. You will gain a solid understanding of why Ember provides this feature, and how your applications can best leverage it.




Included in morning workshop, $25 if purchased separately

While we've already got great conferences like Tilde's EmberConf to look forward to in 2015, we wanted to cap off the year by giving the denizens of Toronto an afternoon of talks to chew on by premiere Emberists, both from our fair city and the NYC circuit.

Starting at 1pm, followed by a cocktail hour at 5pm in the ballroom.
