Chicago Ember.js training with Erik Bryn

About your instructor: Erik Bryn

Erik is a member of the Ember.js core team. He's been using and contributing to Ember since its inception almost five years ago.

Erik has helped companies like LinkedIn, Square, Netflix, Zendesk, PagerDuty and numerous others both learn Ember.js and build ambitious Ember.js applications.

Preliminary topic outline


This is an advanced web development class, so you should be comfortable with Ember concepts, JavaScript, jQuery, HTTP/AJAX, HTML and CSS. We want to make sure we're building solid mental models, so we won't assume any existing Ember knowledge, but beginner concepts will be covered quickly.

You’ll be responsible for bringing your own laptop. WiFi & power outlets will be provided.

Teaching style

Our objective is to build a real-world, complex, Ember app in three days. The course will assume no prior Ember experience, but will quickly move into intermediate/advanced topics. There will be "extra credit" assignments that help keep even the most advanced developer engaged and challenged. We're going to be focused on writing JavaScript. Therefore, markup, CSS, and other assets will be provided so we can focus specifically on our app's JS code. A RESTful API server will be provided, so you will not have to write any backend code during the class.

Our goal is to make the class feel like you're on a team working with an Ember core team member developing an application from the ground up.

We’ll build the app in an agile/iterative approach:

Register your interest:



We’ll be in a classroom environment where everyone will have their own workspace and power outlet.
