Ember 101

Ember is an opinionated front-end JavaScript MVC framework for creating ambitious web applications. Having recently released version 1.0.0, you no longer have any excuse to not be using Ember.

But just because Ember exists and is awesome doesn't mean that you've had the time to investigate it yourself. That's okay: I've got you covered. We'll start from the very beginning with a brief discussion on single-page application design patterns, how the venerable MVC architecture applies in that world, and then we'll dive into Ember.

Oh, and I've got swag. :)

    Here are the slides from my presentation:

    And for posterity wondering about the last slide: there was a Clemson football game the same night as this presentation.

    Nathan did a great job on introducing Ember. I'm looking forward next month's 201 chat.

    Very interesting subject, thanks for an introduction to Ember. It looks more compelling than I had thought.

    Nathan's presentation was well put together, educational, and entertaining.

    Any suggestions for parking to get to Skookum?

      After 6pm any on-street parking far enough away from the Epicentre is free. Alternatively, the BB&T deck (enter on Fourth, before reaching Tryon) is convenient.

    Could I repurpose for JS class at a community college? Looking for the "best" set of tools for the stack, so they've at least got exposure when they're done with the course.

      Would love to have you as a guest speaker, though afraid it might be a bit too much for our students- and the advanced JS class is fully online! However we could arrange for an in-classroom recording See for examples of what I do for that)

      I do have something you might also be able to chime in on- looking for a sample full tech stack... so I say html5, css3, JS, node.js and mongodb... add in sprites and ? What else do I need for one full sample? Ember? Backbone? Bootstrap? Jade? CSSLess? (yeah, i know these are for different purposes and parts of the stack, but I'd like one (the best?) of each with which i can do one full simple app (i.e user management, simple app, and some CRUD) so students can finish and say they at least touched those things. Perhaps a bit much for this forum, but you can email [masked]

    Can't wait to get a proper intro to Ember.

      Feel free to take two hours!

      Peter, my Clemson Tigers will be playing NC State that night en route to a run at the national championship. It will be exactly one hour, but I'll also be giving the presentation in October.
