Ember Data in the Wild Is Out!

Ember Data in the Wild - Getting Ember Data to Work With Your API

I’m excited to announce that my book Ember Data in the Wild - Getting Ember Data to Work With Your API is finally finished and available for purchase!

I wrote this book because lots of books and tutorials start off teaching Ember with Ember Data, but not all of us are fortunate to have APIs that work with Ember Data out of the box. When I started, I saw terms like adapters, serializers, transforms, embedded records, and snapshots and quickly felt overwhelmed. Maybe you’ve thought to yourself that Ember wasn’t for you. This was me when I first started with Ember. If this sounds familiar, then this book is for you. My goal with this book is to teach you how to adapt Ember Data to fit your API.

Chapters

  1. Welcome
  2. Ember Data Overview
  3. Talking to APIs with Adapters
  4. API Response Formats and Serializers

I've been enjoying @iamdtang's Pro Ember Data book. It's to the point and has lots of great examples. My favorite part was about error handling. This book is perfect after you've exhausted the official guides.

I haven't read David's new book, but his previous Ember Data book helped me a lot when I was starting out with Ember, so I am sure this book is a must if you're working with Ember Data!

I bought Ember Data in the Wild back in 2016 and found it really helpful. Looking forward to reading this.
