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

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.
