The web technology landscape is constantly changing, and as Rubyists we have a constant supply of new toys to play with. Some of these toys help us write better code or make our lives easier, and others implement entirely new ways of doing things. Regardless, nearly all of them aim to make things faster.

One area where things have traditionally been slow is pushing state changes to the browser in the typical request => response pattern. The likes of 37Signals have tried to speed this up using Ajax and Turbolinks, but the fundamental design has remained the same: We're still generating HTML on a server and sending down a wire to a browser.

In order to build desktop-class responsiveness we need to take the leap to generating HTML client side, in the browser. This is what Ember.js excels at.

Thank you for your proposal. Unfortunately, due to the high number of excellent proposals, our panel has not been able to include this talk at this stage. Should this situation change, we will contact you.

Thanks Keith,

That's fine, I didn't have high hopes for it getting in anyway. On a related note, I'm thinking of running a full day Ember.js workshop around the time Rubyconf is on.

Hi Ivan, We are interested in having you prepare this talk in case there is a last minute speaker withdrawal. Is that OK with you?

Hey Keith,

I could probably put something together closely related to what I'm presenting at campJS this weekend. Is Ember.js with Rails still an ok topic, or should I try to be more ruby focussed, perhaps around building the backend code to support an Ember based application?

What sort of heads up would I likely get if a speaker pulls out?

Hi Ivan,

More Ruby focus would be good. We'd give you as much warning as possible but hopefully you won't be needed. We're just trying to cover ourselves by lining up a couple of reserves just in case.

Sounds good, it is shaping up to be an amazing conference.

I'll be on standby.
