Introduction to Ember.js


Create truly ambitious web applications with Ember.js

This course is designed to build your Ember skills from the ground up, so you can deliver amazing user interfaces on the web. In three days, you’ll build an application with a robust build pipeline that communicates with a real web server and performs like a dream.

We'll cover these topics:

  • Reactive user interfaces with computed properties
  • Templates
  • Building with components
  • Routing
  • Integrating with non-Ember libraries
  • Services in Ember
  • Ember Data
  • Testing and Debugging

You'll gain hands-on experience, so you can begin building your own Ember apps with confidence. Each topic will be applied in a lab to give you the chance to transfer the knowledge from your head to your hands.

What should I know before the course?

We’ll assume that you have basic knowledge and experience with HTML and JavaScript.

What do I need to bring?

A laptop with git and node.js installed. Need help? Here's a good overview of setting up a development environment.
