"I contribute to Ember" with Ben Demboski" 👨💻, become an Ember author in DecEmber ✍️🎄, a reminder to help test the new Inspector 🔬, release v3.0.0 of ember-test-selectors 🎉, and try out Ember Electron v3 beta today 🖥️!
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 month, the Ember Blog will feature one fun, useful and interesting Ember addon each day. And we are still looking for writers to make the official Countdown to the New Year blog post series a reality!
Following last week's announcement about the awesome new work being done on Ember Inspector to support Octane 🔥, please don't forget to help test the new changes and let the Inspector team know about your experiences (positive or negative).
The Inspector changes in question are currently still in a pull request, so if you're interested in taking it for a spin, you'll have to follow the instructions in the PR's description. Note: These instructions are not the same as installing Inspector in the usual manner for your browser.
Please feel free to report any success stories or issues either in the PR or in the #st-octane channel of Discord.
While the new changes relate primarly to suppport of Octane, it would be very helpful to test this particular build of the Inspector on older versions of Ember as well! 😊
