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.

Ember 2.0

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.

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.

About the Author

Adolfo Builes
Adolfo Builes

I work as an independent consultant, mostly helping people build web products with Ruby on Rails and Ember.js.

I used to dislike (hate) front-end development and focus mostly on backend, but Ember.js changed that.

I started contributing to different projects related to Ember.js, writing documentation and fixing bugs in Ember and Ember Data. The majority of my work has been in the ember-cli project where I had the opportunity to get involved in its early days.

After doing a lot of Ember.js/ember-cli tutoring, I decided to write this book to help people get started with Ember.js and ember-cli.

If you find yourself stuck while working on your Ember.js application, feel free to reach me. I provide a free hour of pairing every week.

If you have any questions about the book, I'm available 24/7 on the IRC channel #ember-cli-101.
