Speaking Sessions

  • Improving your Frontend with Ember (MVC JS Framework)

    9:45 AM Saturday   Room: 4201
    Front end development has really progressed in the last two years. You've probably seen the shifting landscape of JavaScript frameworks, Backbone, Angular, Ember, etc. I'll be giving you an in-depth look at Ember. I'll briefly cover the advantages and disadvantages of Ember (comparative look, not a flame war) and then we'll dive into some awesome code (hello world, explain file structure, explaining resources to help you after my presentation, etc). Front ends can do marvelous things now a days, from caching, fully featured Data Access Layers, and data binding (single source of truth on the model, and templates/views that automagically stay up to date). Let's have some fun, I hope you join me on this guided adventure through EmberJS!
