I will be there tonight and happy to help out or just hang out. I like to
think I know some python.

If you have to get up to speed on ember, I found the peepcode screencast to
be the most helpful 'getting started' resource if you don't mind shelling
out $12. While the framework appears to be slowly turning into less of a
piece of undocumented horseshit, the docs are still wildly hostile to an
absolute beginner. Furthermore, the framework doesn't feel pythonic at all,
very much valuing "convention over configuration"  which to me just feels
like it flies in the face of our "explicit is better than implicit"
