Ember.js - A Framework for Building Ambitious Web Applications - Ryan Anklam

UPDATE: Rescheduled to November 18th, and we will be raffling off a 1 Year Adobe Creative Cloud Memebership!!!

Ember.js  is an extremely powerful and robust framework that includes powerful data bindgings, a robust router, templates based on the popular Handlebars library, and encapsulated components.   This session aims to solve one of the hardest parts of getting started with ember:  wrapping your head around how to combine all these concepts into a working web application.  Attendees will be introduced to all of the main components of Ember.js and shown how they all fit together.  In addition attendees will also learn about Ember's unique data persistence layer, ember-data.  


To introduce audience members to the basic building blocks of Ember.js applications.

Target audience

Developers who have heard about Ember and are interested but haven't actually built anything with Ember.

Assumed knowledge

Basic understanding of JavaScript.

Why I'm Qualified

I've given hands-on sessions on Ember at NCDevCon, I've written about Ember in Flippin' Awesome.

Audience will learn

• What is Ember and what problems does it solve

• What are the basic building blocks of an Ember application

• What Ember components are and how they allow developers to build reusable objects

• Extending the Handlebars templating language with custom helpers

• How to test Ember applications.


Ryan Anklam is a Senior UI Engineer at Netflix where is working on reinventing TV and continually improving the Netflix user experience.

    If you attended last night, and forgot to put your name on the sign-in sheet, could you let me know? I need to keep track of how many attend our meetings for Adobe.

    Thank you,

    Hi Carl,

    Is there a agenda for this meetup? I would love to see the agenda.

    Due to the popularity of the topic, we currently have a few folks on the wait list. If you aren't going to be able to attend, please update your RSVP status as soon as possible so those on the wait list can get in. Thank you,

    I'm really excited by how many of you have RSVP'd for this meetup. I think it might be a record for BACFUG!

    Sadly, due to circumstances beyond my control, I have to move the meetup to the November meetup date (November 18th). I'm very sorry for the inconvenience to you all.

    Good news, though: this will be the night of our semi-annual raffle - so I'll be raffling off a 1 year Adobe Creative Cloud membership.

    If you can make it to the new date in November, I look forward to seeing you then. If you can't (and I understand some of you may not be able to), please update your RSVP accordingly so I can get an accurate head count and arrange security badges accordingly.

    Thanks, and see you in November!
