About the Book
Learn to write Ember.js applications from the ground up.
If you are just getting started with Ember.js, this book is perfect for you. We’ll work on a real world application (not a to-do list) that will allow you to learn Ember.js and its main features while using ember-cli. Introducing Ember-Data from the first example, you'll learn how to work with data coming from an API as well as how to consume raw JSON using $.ajax.
Don’t fall into common traps. We'll tell you what to keep an eye on when using certain features. There are a lot of changes going on in Ember, Ember-Data, and ember-cli. This book will continue to develop along with those changes.
The book will be frequently updated to accomodate to the changes coming on Ember 2.0. You will be able to learn Ember as it is currently and you'll also get tips about things to keep in mind and how you can start to write code which can be easily migrated once 2.0 becomes the official release. Don't worry about keeping track of every change, we'll make sure you get all the details.
If you want a book that keeps tracks of the Ember.js ecosystem, then ember-cli-101 is the right choice.
Get 24/7 support
We know how difficult it is to follow a text that contains poor examples, or worse, a text that leaves you with unanswered questions and nobody on hand to offer guidance. We provide 24/7 support to all interested readers through our IRC channel #ember-cli-101.
I purchased your book today and all I have to say is it is awesome. It really connected the dots for me
Adolfo’s step by step guidance in developing a ember web app through this book unleashed my own creativity for developing ember apps.
Good resources about Ember are rare and Adolfo's book was an invaluable help for me when learning. Ember-CLI makes Ember fun and Adolfo's book makes it easy.
Bought the book the other day and it is EXCELLENT...a very comprehensive how-to for Ember
The workshop includes personalized guidance where we'll go through the book with weekly sessions of questions and answers plus a special guest.
It also includes access to a participant forum where you can get all of your questions answered and 24/7 support through our IRC channel.
