Backbone and Ember with Ashkenas and Katz

The team at the JavaScript Jabber podcast have really pulled together an amazing show this week, bringing Jeremy Ashkenas and Yehuda Katz together for a riveting live discussion of Backbone.js and Ember.js. This is a fantastic followup to the IRC discussion about Backbone and Ember that I covered on CoffeeScript Love a couple weeks ago.

In the 54-minute podcast, Katz talks at length about the design philosophy behind Ember, as well as the lessons he learned about convention over configuration while working on jQuery and Merb. He also talks about "the pipe dream" of using the same Mustache.js templates on both client and server. But don't assume it's just Katz lecturing (which I will listen to any day, by the way.) With Ashkenas and four other panelists on the line, the discourse is multi-sided, rapid, and forceful. Admittedly, there isn't much about CoffeeScript. But if you follow trends in JavaScript, these are the guys shaping the future, engaged in frank conversation. You shouldn't miss it.
