The Ember.js Times - Issue #37
ဟယ်လို Emberistas!

This week we are busy gearing up for EmberConf 2018, which is only a couple days away! In this edition we’ll check out EmberConf’s public live stream and take a peek at the blazing pace of Ember’s development.
Can’t make it to Portland? No problem! You can access the live stream here and there’s closed captioning too. The event kicks off on March 13th at 9:30am PST with a keynote from Ember’s founders, Tom Dale and Yehuda Katz. The full schedule of talks is available on the EmberConf website. Join in on the #conf-emberconf channel on Slack to participate from afar!

An update for the official Ember Tutorial to show how to use the new Ember Testing API (1, 2) - which is now available in all your shiny new Ember 3.x apps through generators and blueprints-
is now live! It shows you how to use the new ember-qunit syntax and @ember/test-helpers correctly, so you can build and test your very first Ember app right from the start. You can check out the new step-by-step tutorial on how to build an Ember app on here.

Lots of other contributions trickled in this week to fix and improve the official Testing Guides, to make it even easier for you to get started with the new Testing API (3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9). You can check out the full Testing Guides on here.
The Ember deprecations app is live!
The deprecations site might look the same on the surface, but this new Ember app showcases some cutting-edge engineering patterns! Written content in Markdown form is turned into pre-rendered content using Fastboot and prember. It supports syntax-highlighted code blocks too, with ember-prism. This architecture allows for super-fast time to first paint and helps with some SEO problems that SPAs (single page apps) often face. You can check out the source code here.

So many thanks to the project leaders serenaf and mansona, plus devops expertise from sivakumar-kailasam. Supporting contributors include jaredgalanis, amyrlam, rwwagner90, acorncom, and jenweber. Projects like this are many months in the making, so we’re appreciative of all the steady hard work and dedication to bring it to the finish line. 🏁✨

A month ago, we started a new section of the newsletter where our lovely readers can submit questions for the Ember core teams to reply. Now is your chance to catch up with answers you might’ve missed before, or that you want to give another re-read.
Keep those questions coming, and keep an eye out for news coming out of EmberConf ;)

Got a question for the Core team yourself? Submit your own questions here
We will answer one of your questions in another edition of the Ember.js Times
