Ember for Rails developers

A Rails-friendly introduction to Ember

Rails is getting dusty

You've been developing Ruby and Rails for years. You have carefully honed your skills and you can create server side applications in your sleep.

But now you're getting worried about falling behind. Everybody is talking about client side applications, single page apps, and Javascript MVC frameworks.

Learning Ember is hard

So you tried learning Ember. And you failed. The documentation is confusing. The blog posts are outdated. The screencasts are hard to follow. The terms used seem so familiar, yet are so different.

"I'm a seasoned developer, I should be able to get this!", you mutter to yourself.

You are not alone

I've been there, and I too found it frustrating, so I decided to do something about it.

Imagine that you could write Ember applications as easily as you write Rails applications? Imagine that Ember didn't feel so foreign. What if your years of Rails experience could actually help you in Ember land?

Ember for Rails developers

Ember for Rails developers takes your hand and guides you through the rough waters of learning Ember. It takes the new, confusing terms and puts them in context to the world you already know.

It is a hands on introduction to Ember written by an experienced Rails developer. After reading it you will be better equipped to write your first Ember applications and for digging into the more advanced areas of Ember.
