Ember.js is a new client-side JavaScript framework (with deep roots) and provides a number of interesting features, including declarative bindings, computed properties, and auto-updating templates — not to mention a separate data layer that simplifies synchronization with server-side frameworks.

I’ll explain what specific features of Ember.js set it apart from other JavaScript MVC frameworks, why we chose it at LivingSocial, and illustrate how to get started using Ember.js, walking step-by-step through an example application.

The talk will draw heavily from lessons learned over months of working side-by-side with the Ember.js team building a series of large-scale applications and contributing to its features and stability.
