Ember Data - It's Not Just for JSON API Anymore
by Robert Wagner | @shipshapecode (https://twitter.com/shipshapecode)

Have you ever been completely stumped by a nonstandard API and integrating it with Ember Data? Ember Data “just works” with JSON API out of the box, so often you do not need to know much about the magic behind the scenes. When you have a nonstandard API, however, things can get hairy quick.

We’ll cover how to leverage the Ember Data hooks to bridge the gap, doing things like manually adding in links and relationships, for side loading data, combining multiple API calls together into one response, changing the entire structure of your data, adding and removing default records and much, much more!



Typed Ember: Strong Types for Better Apps
by James C. Davis | @jamscdavis (https://twitter.com/jamscdavis)

Have you been curious about TypeScript, but not sure if it’s for you? Are you unconvinced of its advantages? Did you even know you could use TypeScript with Ember? If you answered yes to any of those questions (and even/especially if you didn’t) then this talk is for you!

Instead of a deep dive into using TypeScript with Ember, this talk will demonstrate everyday usage. We'll work to prove that switching to TypeScript to build your Ember apps and addons will make them more robust and maintainable, provide a better developer experience, and lead to improved productivity.



Anatomy of an Addon Ecosystem
by Lisa Backer | @eshtadc (https://twitter.com/eshtadc)

How do plugin-style addons actually work? Many of us have reaped the benefits of an Ember addon plugin approach, like with ember-service-worker and ember-cli-deploy.

These ecosystems utilize the build process to enable a plugin architecture requiring only configuration to implement powerful capabilities. But how, you ask?

We’ll do a technical deep dive into the mechanics of how the ember-service-worker ecosystem utilizes plugins. Along the way we’ll investigate the addon lifecycle and broccoli customizations. Finally we’ll touch on the unique problems of testing such addons.
