This presentation will:
1.) Demo a real world example of how Amber has been introduced into existing web applications written in Ruby
3.) Show how to edit, inspect, test, debug and save client-side code live, all from within a web browser
When Avi Bryant created Clamato — which Amber is based on — he said “the main objective is to have a more pleasant environment in which to write the client-side of web applications.”
Amber brings this Smalltalk environment, not just the language, to client-side web development. Amber is a way to expose more people to the joy of development in a Smalltalk environment without the commitment of changing existing back-end technologies.
