FastBoot to the Future by Chad Carbert

FastBoot is an important piece of the Ember SDK picture, and provides much more than improved render times and progressive enhancement. This talk will take a look at FastBoot, its mechanics, and how it supports Ember in tackling a whole new set of engineering problems.

Ember, Outside the Box by Michael Lange

Frameworks are great skeletons to build products around, but what happens when the framework doesn't have a solution for your problem? Hear about how to work with a framework while extending functionality beyond it, all in the form of a long-winded case study of code that is in production.
