Ember Meetup

January 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us in downtown Austin! This month’s meetup will be hosted at the Galvanize campus in the 2nd street district.

There will be plenty of food, drinks and enlightenment. We’ll be migrating over to the Gingerman for an informal social event after the night’s talks. This month’s lineup is:

The Making of a Component Guide

Ember is all about components. How do we effectively document all of the components that are being used in a growing application, and make sure that everyone is on the same page?
In this talk, Dan will talk about how he addressed this at his company by creating an Ember Component Guide, which documents all of the reusable components that are used in their web application. This is “living”, as the guide uses the actual components themselves.
He’ll be talking about how he created the Guide, and how it has improved reuse, visibility, and communication among their engineers and designers.

Dan Wenzel is a front-end engineer at PagerDuty. There, he specializes in building reusable Ember components and evangelizing the Ember Way.

Ember ATX 2016 retrospective & look ahead to 2017

We’re going to bring 2017 in easy with one talk and a group discussion. The group discussion will be about how things went for Ember ATX in 2016 and what we can do to improve in 2017.

We’re also going to share our current plans for 2017! After this we are going to migrate to the Gingerman.

Don’t forget to thank our wonderful sponsors! 

We’d like to give a big hug to our venue sponsor, Galvanize, for hooking us up with a super sweet downtown location. We’re incredibly excited about the space!


There is a paid garage in the Galvanize building that has reasonable prices after hours. We also recommend taking public transit, looking for street parking, parking in the surface lot at Guadalupe and 3rd or using the City Hall or Violet Crown parking garages.

How to find us in the Galvanize building

Take the elevator to the second floor to check in at the front desk. They will direct you to the correct lecture space.

We’d love to hear from you!

EmberATX is a community-organized event run by volunteers that are passionate about building an inclusive, inspiring tech community in Austin. We are always looking for new contributors. Please contact one of the organizers if you’d like to try your hand at speaking, want to sponsor one of our events or have some ideas about how to make our meetup amazing. Tweet us! (@EmberATX)
