Ember.js night @ Full Stack Toronto
I think the location is a secret.
Jasna gave a live-coded demo of using Ember to make requests to a RESTful API to do CRUD operations and display the results. Ember is an opinionated, batteries-included framework. It has more opinions than Angular when comes to data modelling.
Vikram talked about his experience working with Ember.js at LinkedIn. I wrote down some words:
- JSON API is a specification for JSON responses from servers. It exists to stop people from arguing about how to format arrays and objects and data in HTTP responses. Just stick to the specification and you’ll probably be OK.
- Ember Engines are little composable chunks of applications that come together to form bigger applications. An Ember Engine has a lot in common in an Ember Application, but it can’t run on its own or control a router.
- Glimmer 2 is a new faster renderer for Ember Applications
- LinkedIn had to figure out server-side rendering for Ember for some pages that had to be visible to search engines & crawlers. Ember now supports SSR with FastBoot.
