We'd like to continue the application process with you.

For technical candidates, we ask that they submit a solution to a coding challenge. Take a look at this exercise: REDACTED

Here are a few things we'd like you to keep in mind as you work on this problem.

We encourage you to think of this in a real world context, meaning that a client really wants to DO THIS THING, (you can assume the client has a laptop with them and can run arbitrary command-line or web programs). In other words, we want you to solve the problem, not just the algorithm. How will the client run the program? How will the output be presented?

Here's a description that is roughly the problem I'm having:
The ember.js site I'm working on has a number of different screens
(deliberately using a word that has no ember connotations).
Let's say, for the sake of argument, 3 of them.
Each of these screens has their own normal route, controller, model,
template structure. This is all standard.
Now I want a dashboard. For the sake of argument, let's say I want

Problem I'm having with Ember and Jasmine

I'm trying to run an Ember controller in a Jasmine test, and it's giving me some trouble.

This spec works, in that it renders the controller, and most of the controller is rendered accurately and can be tested.

However, there is clearly a difference between how I'm setting up these objects in the test, and how Ember sets them up at run time, because parts of the controller are not working in the test...


  • The itemController is not accessed at all, which means that the reference to "startDateDisplay" (which is defined in the item controller) comes up empty.
