As businesses shift towards web-based solutions, there's been an increasing amount of customer needs that can only be met by sophisticated web applications. Building these applications is not easy and huge efforts have been invested in order to realize faster delivery of such applications. Ember.js is one of these efforts and acquiring expert knowledge of its key concepts will enable the realization of shorter and profitable web application development cycles.
Developing single-page web applications is about to get easier! This book introduces you to web application development using the Ember.js web framework. Mastering Ember.js will help you to utilize its full potential and will show you how to create web applications. You will learn about views, event management, logging, debugging, and error management, always focusing on best practices. Finally, you will test your application and learn how to use WebSockets with Ember.js and end the book by modularizing your project.

I found the book to be REALLY good. It gives an excellent overview and in many cases in-depth explanation of many different Ember topics including Ember's Object model, components, ember-data and promises. The writing style is pretty clear and understandable even to Ember beginners (most of the time). It even covers some advanced topics like integrating Ember with socket.io, which is pretty cool. What it does NOT cover that I wish it would cover is ember-cli. ember-cli is Ember's build/dependency management tool and it also has generators, which are meant to get you going in a similar fashion to Ruby-on-Rails' generators. (It is true that ember-cli is not "fully-cooked" yet, but completely avoiding it was probably an oversight.)
I really enjoyed reading this book, it taught me a lot of things that I didn't know about Ember.js. This book is perfect for you if you are starting your training on Ember.js. Even if you have played a little bit with Ember.js, this book will also help you to improve your knowledge and your technical skills. I found very useful the chapter about building Real-time applications with Socket.io. This book will also show you how to write tests for your Ember.js application. In summary, you will learn the most important core concepts of the framework and that’s something very valuable.
