Ember.js—A framework for creating ambitious web applications

John Christopher (@jgchristopher), Director of Development at Pollenware (home to our last presenter, Nick Nisi), will be giving a talk on Ember.js:

Ember.js touts itself as “A framework for creating ambitious web applications.” This talk will provide an ambitious introduction to Ember.js, covering the following:

  1. Philosophy behind Ember.js and why you might choose it over other frameworks.
  2. Idioms used inside of Ember.js.
  3. How to get started with it.

    I love learning about new technologies that can help me create a better site. Just found that even though it was an into to Ember, I got pretty confused with what you where doing to get it all setup and what it was accomplishing in the command line. With all the Ruby referenced I also got pretty confused. Would have liked a front-end developer approach since that was the end result anyway and that would have made it more generic. But I got a good idea and it really helped. Thanks.

      Didn't mean to hit enter on that last reply :) If you checkout the github project, it will work in a browser by just opening the file from the local file system. It is pretty minimal and doesn't require any command line stuff. I may just do a small screencast going over just that part of the talk to hopefully make things clearer.

    Had the same issue with the gate. Is there a recording of the meetup?

    Someone asked a question about using view helpers and I didn't have a good example or answer. Here is an update to the demo that shows the use of view helpers. https://github.com/jgchristopher/nebraskajs-intro-to-ember/commit/cfd2b627f34dc20be8bf8a862963776d431a5702

    Wish I could have found the location. Is there a way to get past that gate on 13th?

      Oh man. So terribly sorry. The gate closed and we were letting people in manually. I posted a warning on twitter and was keeping an eye out the window but I must've missed you. So sorry :(

    Guess I'll be able to make it after all!

    I'm very interested in learning all I can about Ember.js, but there doesn't seem to be too many people using it in my area (Cedar Rapids, Iowa). Any possibility of joining in via Skype?
