Intro to Ember Octane

A brand new Ember Edition - now more powerful and easier to learn than ever

Ember is the framework for ambitious frontend web developers.

Ambition, however, can come with a cost. When Ember first launched it was slow and difficult to learn. Both of those have been steadily improving, but there hasn't been a big "event" release that showcases those changes...

Until now.

Ember Octane takes everything you love about modern web development and combines it in one ambitious, cohesive package.

This three-hour video course will teach you the basics of Ember Octane and give you the tools you need to create awesome frontend web apps.

Frequently Asked Questions


What do I need to know before starting this course?

You'll need to know the basics of html and javascript.

If you've worked with another frontend web framework in the past, that's a big bonus, but not required.

Why don't you cover Ember Data, Services, Custom Helpers, Query Params, etc.?

This course teaches a limited subset of Ember... a subset that's pretty comparable to that of some popular Javascript view-layer component libraries + a router.

I do this for two reasons.

First, I want to show that when you compare apples to apples, Ember is just as easy (and maybe easier) to learn than other Javascript view-layer component libraries.

Second, I believe that once students have a solid feel for the basics, they'll be able to confidently learn the rest through reading the guides and API docs.

Will you be teaching more advanced Ember courses?

I currently have one course available for intermediate and advanced Ember developers: Upgrading Ember from 3.0 to Octane

If this course does well, there will be more intermediate and advanced courses coming soon!

In the meantime, there's also quite a bit of advanced but older content over at EmberScreencasts.
