  • Discover how to use ember-cli's code generation tools to get up and running with a new project in mere seconds
  • Discover how to harness ember-data to efficiently communicate with a RESTful API
  • Discover how to design Ember components, and use them to expressively compose rich interfaces
  • Discover how to write unit, integration and acceptance tests, with some help from Pretender.js
  • Discover how to set up a CI/CD pipeline, using travis-ci and heroku

Spend Two Full Days Immersed With a Leading Ember Master

Workshop Details

Ember.js is a framework well-suited for complex and highly interactive apps. Its "convention over configuration" philosophy can end up saving developers from spending time and energy, having to write boilerplate code. With ember's recent release of the "2.0" version, the framework is are, more performant, and more complete than ever. Over this two day course, we'll learn about the ember ecosystem, and build a rich cross-device app together step-by-step from scratch.

Daily Schedule

Regardless if you're in-person or participating with us online you'll have the full ability to replay things you missed, get your questions answered LIVE and interact with the teacher throughout the day. We'll begin with a brief overview of the philosophy behind Ember.js, consider its recent evolution into the 2.0 version, and where it's going from here. Ember is a convention-oriented, opinionated framework, so we'll talk about those conventions and opinions. Next, we'll dive in to some of the most fundamental objects in the Ember world: Routes, Views, Controllers and Components, and discuss the role and practial use of each. We'll talk about the emphasis of components in ember 2.0, and the accompanying de-emphasis of controllers and views. Why were these decisions made? What are the ramifications on your app? Then, we'll talk about ember's persistence library, ember-data, and JSON-API, ember-data's opinion of how RESTful JSON APIs should be structured. What if your API doesn't speak JSON-API? We'll learn how to build small adapters that bridge the gap between your API and ember's ideal API. One of the benefits of building a single-page app is that there is no page load as the user transitions from one area to another. We'll look at a popular ember addon called Liquid Fire, which can be used to easily animate transitions between screens. Ambitious apps need ambitious testing. We'll go over unit, integration and functional tests, outlining some best practices and pro tips for each. I'll show you how to use Pretender to mock your API, so that your UI can be validated consistently and independently. Lastly, I'll share some of my hard-learned lessons about test-writing.
