The first part of any Ember project is to get the basic up and running. Since this is a super basic example we are just going to wire up a Go server to serve our static assets. Now that we have a basic http server we can setup our Ember environment. I have included a script that will grab jQuery, Handlebars, and Ember for you. These are all the dependencies that you need to get the project up and running. Now we can actually create our ember application. The canonical example name space is App, but you can use any name that you would like. This line of code bootstraps your Ember application. It will automatically run once the page is loaded. Let’s create our kittens endpoint. First we are going use the super excellent Gorilla web toolkit’s mux for routing. I prefer to have my api endpoint under an /api name space. This is not a requirement, but a personal preference.

Google runs its web empire on computers the size of warehouses.Inside the massive data centers that drive things like Google Search and Gmail and Google Maps, you’ll find tens of thousands of machines — each small enough to hold in your arms — but thanks to a new breed of software that spans this sea of servers, the entire data center operates like a single system, one giant computer that runs any application the company throws at it.A Google application like Gmail doesn’t run on a particular server or even a select group of servers. It runs on the data center, grabbing computing power from any machine than can spare it. Google calls this “warehouse-scale computing,” and for some, it’s an idea so large, they have trouble wrapping their heads around it.Solomon Hykes isn’t one of them. He aims for something even bigger. With a new open-source software project known as Docker, he wants to build a computer the size of the internet.Sitting in his company’s offices, on the 16th floor of a high-rise in downtown San Francisco, Hykes is wearing a t-shirt with a whale on it. This is a whale of the cartoon variety. It’s grinning slightly as it floats on a wavy blue sea, and on its back, it carries a stack of shipping containers — the sort you’d see towering over the docks in Oakland, across the bay from San Francisco, or on the train cars heading north towards Sacramento.Click headline to read more--

Writing code in an async programming framework like node.js becomes super complex and unbearably ugly super fast. You are dealing with synchronous and asynchronous functions and mixing them together can get really tricky. That is why we have Control Flow. Basically, control flow libraries allow you to write non-blocking code that executes in an asynchronous fashion without writing too much glue or plumbing code. There is a wholesection on control-flow modules to help you unwind the sphagetti of callbacks that you will quickly land yourself into while dealing with async calls in node.js. Control flow as a pattern can been implemented via several approaches and one of such approaches is called Promises.
