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.
