THIS SESSION HAS REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS LISTED BELOW

If you’ve done online tutorials, courses, or followed blog posts, you probably have a decent idea of what Ember is. But how do you build real, production-grade applications in it? How do you stitch together the pieces from tutorials into a larger picture? What about all the stuff that isn’t in the tutorials?

We’ll help you sort through some of the tougher challenges beyond the guides and blog posts:

  • Working with non-standard APIs
  • Integrating existing jQuery components
  • Authentication and security
  • Testing strategies to let you sleep at night
  • Refactoring toward Ember from “jQuery spaghetti”

We’ll condense 2 years of shipping production applications so you can connect the dots and put the individual pieces together in a real-world application, so you can build ambitious web applications that are fun and easy to maintain.
