I’ve heard lots of good noises coming from the Ember camp lately, so I started diving in a couple weeks ago. I’m really excited with what I’ve seen, but getting started is still harder than it should be. The documentation is improving rapidly, but it was still difficult to get over the initial hump. We’re super lucky to have @workmanw here in town. He’s a Sproutcore veteran and Ember promoter who’s also been really helpful with questions we’ve had along the way. I also compiled this list of what I found to be the most helpful.

Yehuda waxes philosophical on the topics of convention vs. configuration and how the new and improved router works.
Tom’s Talk at Seattle Ember
Tom covers Ember Data. Data is exciting because it’ll abstract away lots of work that gets duplicated on most projects.
Intro to Ember
Testing Ember Apps
Trek has been killing it on the documentation lately. He’s responsible for a lot of the new guide content on http://emberjs.com. This post was super helpful starting from nothing and building a super simple Ember app.
Another great article walking through complex concepts from beginning to end.
Tom’s intro to new router syntax.
