The Learning Team met IRL at EmberConf and shared the results of that meeting on the Ember blog
. Initiatives for the new year were grouped into two directions - User Support and Marketing.
Some big things are happening over the next few weeks for The Guides
! A new app
will be launching soon! Chris Manson
has been working on this project since November, together with a few other contributors.
Many have been dreaming of it for years. The main difference is that The Guides have been coverted to an Ember app (instead of a Ruby app), making it easier for new people to contribute and for the team to maintain. And, because of prember
, it's SEO-friendly
! Deprecation of the old guides app is happening here
. Very soon, Pull Requests
and Issues will be frozen
, and contributions to The Guides will continue in one of two new repositories. The WIP guides-app
is the Ember app that will control layout and functionality, while guides-source
contains the written content in the form of versioned markdown files. In the future, most pull requests will be made to the guides-source to keep our content up to date and continually improving.
The Learning Team and Friends appreciate your patience during the final launch steps. As we tie up loose ends and move to production, we'll give updates via the Ember Community Slack #-team-learning
