The fourth part of the tutorial, Airtable Time, talks about moving the JSON into Airtable. It is a great approach that will reduce the need for an application build for changing only data.
The Ember Accessibility strike team is organizing a blog post series for Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD)! This May 21st will mark the ninth annual Global Accessibility Awareness Day. The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) access/inclusion and people with different disabilities.
At a high level, the "strict mode" (the terminology may change) is opt-in but intended to become the main way Ember users write templates. Once the strict mode is implemented (this may take time), the core teams and addon developers can start experimenting with better ways to support your development workflow. Experimental features such as template imports and single-file components, which build on top of the strict mode, will still need further design and iterations before they can be proposed and recommended to you.
In short, you don't need to worry about an immediate change. It is an exciting change to look forward to, because Ember has been using Handlebars for more than 8 years and we have learned how we can improve its language since. In the meantime, we encourage you to take a look at the strict mode templates RFC!
