Gaiety's visual representation as a fursona (an original furry fandom character) depicted as an animated gif falling downward with a controlled hand outstretched. Faer hair and tail waves in the wind while their floppy dog ears flop about as well. Fae are an anthromorphic canine like a german shepherd clothed like a human in a t-shirt and denim shorts. Art is by Lynte.

Talk: Thinking in Stories: Component-First in Community

Storybook and Ember.js make quality friends.

EmberConf 2022 Introducing Ava Wroten

In these thirty minutes I will live-code a newly generated component with a CSF story that powers its own automation testing and accessibility checks. We’ll leverage Tailwind UI to demonstrate how quickly a beautiful and accessible component can be adapted into Stories powered by Ember. We will build precisely one component for this talk; but in doing so we will deeply explore the mindset behind every intentional step that can re-imagine how components are built by teams to power the next generation of ambitious web applications with solid footing.
