In this week's issue: watch the Ember.js Documentary 🍿, check out the Ember.js core team panel 📹, there's a big update to the guides 📐, a new RFC to deprecate computed().meta() 🚀, and we have an exclusive interview with Ember contributor Lisa Backer! 🎉
A new version of the Ember guides has been deployed, and it contains some exciting surprises. First of all, the guides-source and guides-app repositories have become one repository. This makes it so much more convenient to maintain and contribute. It also now uses the Guidemaker technology which means that CLI-guides and the Ember guides are using the same tech.
And now for the big surprise: The newly deployed guides now contains angle bracket invocation syntax. So, if you're looking to use angle bracket invocation syntax in your Ember application, the guides are the place to look for help.
The once useful function for sharing and looking up meta information through a cp, can now be easily substituted by using WeakMaps - making the deprecation of computed().meta() possible as proposed in the RFC.
In our 5th edition of the contributor interview series community member Lisa Backer, also known as @eshtadc talks about her work on ember-service-worker, public speaking, the things that make open-source so valuable and why anyone in the community can be an expert who has important insights to share.
