Building Addons with Ember CLI

Alex Zirbel works for a company called Addepar, which makes software for investment management, a huge app with lots of visualizations and data. Back in 2012, they picked Ember as the framework best suited to program their product.

There have been a lot of updates to Ember in the past few years, though, and Alex mentions, “we’ve been using Ember since before 1.0, and so, we’ve had to do a lot of keeping up to date.”

This talk includes an introduction to some of the cool new features, as well as advice on how to transition to Ember from an app that used to use something else. The structure of talk is as follows:

  • Intro to Ember Addons
  • Converting a library to the new Addon format
