I talked about what Ember is—a framework for creating ambitious web applications—and analysed the status of JS frameworks in 2013. I recounted the hard things about Ember at the time like poor documentation, a lot of elements (View, ArrayController, ObjectController), complicated templates (render, bind-attr), and two elements in the router (route, resource). I remembered the brilliant things too, such as implicit generation of code (e.g. empty controllers), a lot of power with less code, Ember CLI, arrival of Glimmer VM in Ember 2.0, and the great 6-week release cycle.
Sergio talked about the need to reduce the Ember skills tree, explained Ember Octane
and its new awesome features (Glimmer components, tracked properties, decorators, etc.), and shared the community's next goals (continue to simplify Ember
, modernize the build pipeline with Embroider
, improve accessibility through Ember A11y
, bring Orbit.js
to Ember Data, increase productivity and optimize Ember for growth).
