A less constrained environment

Episode 42 // The EmberMap Podcast

Sam and Ryan discuss new videos on async testing and declarative form validations. They also talk about why it's so hard to create good abstractions in Ember, or more generally the front-end landscape. They discuss constraints versus flexibility, and how the size of a library's problem space affects the likelihood of arriving at a good abstraction.
