The Ember Times - Issue No. 116

🏄‍♂️ Emberistas! 🐹

Check out the new Octane Super Rentals Tutorial 🚀, the 1st EmberJS Meetup in Nizhny 🥳, and an Ember Times exclusive "I contribute to Ember" interview 📝 with Michelle Santarsiero!


Octane Super Rentals Tutorial 🚀

Godfrey Chan @chancancode and Vaidehi Joshi @vaidehijoshi did some great work writing new tutorial content for Octane. You can now preview the revamped Super Rentals tutorial in the Octane guides.

What’s more amazing about this Super Rentals tutorial is that it is automatically generated. It runs the commands from markdown files and edits the files the same way that the reader would. It even captures the output and screenshots for the published tutorial. This way, if any steps stopped working due to a change in Ember itself, we would know right away from a CI failure.

If you are looking to contribute, or if you have any feedback on the content, check out the super-rentals-tutorial repo on GitHub!

Recently, the Ember community of Нижний Новгород ("Nizhny Novgorod") came together for the first event of Nizhny's EmberJS meetup group. The event was a huge success and featured insightful talks around JavaScript, Ember, testing best practices and much more. Event organiser Natasha Fel aka @NataliFel on Twitter shared highlights from the meetup, including these amazing Tomster cookies!

"I contribute to Ember" with Michelle Santarsiero 👩‍💻

Michelle Santarsiero

In our twelfth edition of our contributor interview series, community member Michelle Santarsiero @lonelyghost, talks about her work on Ember Observer, her journey into open source, and her tips for making incremental progress when doing open source on the side. Thank you for your contributions to the Ember community, Michelle!

You can read the full interview on the Ember Discuss Forum.

The idea behind these interviews is to provide community members with more information and insight into open source contributions, learning resources and community events. Contributors to the community gain a platform to share their thoughts on their own experiences and learnings as they were contributing to Ember. Our hope is that it gives first-time and advancing contributors a better sense of the fact that everyone starts out small, and that anyone can have a big impact on the community.
