Earlier this year, @Tim Kendall , @Ryan Ponce, James Menera & I started doing some open source work for Ember.js. Emphasis on started.
All the Acorns web products run on Ember so it was no brainer to give this a go. I was to head up content / design. The other 3 amigos are the Front End super trio. My pixels would actually do things. Building a site with engineers for engineers was rad. I could ask questions like “What do you want your docs to look like?” and they’d be like “Oh we want this. This is best. Yes yes. Want this.” We’d make a decision and move on.
A few weeks into the project and 2 blockers came up. 1: Acorns ramped up so our nightly free time was no where to be found. 2: Ember was in the middle of preparing for their biggest Ember Conference yet. Great timing on both parties.
The project came to a crawl and sorta just stopped.
I’ve attached all the pages we noodled on. The art is no where near complete.
If anyone wants to finish the project, I’m happy to intro you to the Ember crew.
Or just reach out. They're a welcoming community :)
Here’s a link to download that messy sketch doc.
