In our thirteenth edition of our contributor interview series, community member Ryan Mark @tylerturdenpants, talks about his work on codemods. Ryan was an early contributor to The Ember Times in its nascent days! He did a lot of work with Puppeteer on ember-times-tools, a tool to convert Times blog posts to Goodbits, our email provider. Puppeteer is also what ember-codemods-telemetry-helpers uses. 🔗
We’d like to thank Ryan for his contributions to the Ember community, in addition to his financial contribution to cover the Ember Times Goodbits subscription for the last year! 👏 Check out the full interview on the Ember Discuss forum.
The idea behind these interviews is to provide community members with more information and insight into open source contributions, learning resources and community events. Contributors to the community gain a platform to share their thoughts on their own experiences and learnings as they were contributing to Ember. Our hope is that it gives first-time and advancing contributors a better sense of the fact that everyone starts out small, and that anyone can have a big impact on the community.
This week's Readers' Question focusses on a common pattern for managing state in Ember apps: Data Down, Actions Up (DDAU). Even though DDAU is the Ember way to build applications, it at times doesn't seem to come intuitively to those who use the framework. Are there any plans to improve the developer experience for DDAU in Ember apps for the future?
