Thriving through the hype cycle: an Ember.js story, by Ricardo Mendes

The front-end development community has been through a fair share of hype cycles in the last ten years. In this time, we have seen libraries and frameworks come and go, sometimes even disappearing completely like batman.js.

In this talk we will cover how the Ember.js project has managed not only to keep up with the hype cycles, but to continually push the framework and the web forward and bring its users along. We will close off the presentation by talking how this culminates in the concept of editions, the first of which is Ember Octane.
