Book Description

Ember.js is a JavaScript framework based on the Model View Controller design pattern. It brings proven design principles and practices to modern web-based application development and helps you focus on solving your core business problem.

Ember.js Web Development with Ember CLI is for the next generation of web developers who want to build powerful single-page web applications using the simplicity of Ember CLI and the sophistication of the upcoming Ember 2.0. Starting with an introduction to Ember.js, you will explore its object-oriented pattern, cover classes and other properties, diving into great techniques to define your routes when managing applications, and using object and array controllers to encapsulate the application display logic.

Unlike many other books that merely skim the surface, this book has a strong focus on Ember CLI, which will soon be the de facto mode for building apps with Ember.
