A big part of why I have chosen Ember was a course on teamtreehouse.com by a guy named Michael Kaiser-nyman
The course is very well explained for beginners, goes over things at a slow pace, and doesn’t skip around. For someone who is very experienced it would probably be a bit slow and ridiculously simple - but for myself at my level it was exactly what I needed.
The problem is that doesn’t include a lot of the changes, doesn’t include ember-cli, it mentions ArrayController and Object Controller (which today I have learned are now deprecated).
For someone who is beginning, who might take a while to fully grasp a concept - they might only just begin to understand something when already the line of thinking has moved on.
So to get to a question of sorts - what I would really love to see is someone make a high quality, professional (high quality audio, video) well designed course aimed at beginners, taking into consideration the problem areas, areas where newer people get lost.
I’d be happy to pay $50 - $100 (or more if it was really well made) because it is worth that to save so much time and confusion.
Another good resource I have found is embergrep.com though I would have liked for it to go into a bit more detail and was a little fast at points. What I liked about that course was that it was using ember-cli, the module syntax (which I grasp but at the same time I’m not completely comfortable with).
If anyone can offer any help - that would be great, I live in Perth, Western Australia - so I don’t think there are too many Ember people around the place!
I am definitely interested in really mastering this framework, as I see it as something that will be relevant long term. I am very happy with how Tom Dale and Yehuda Katz present themselves, it is obvious they care about open source and innovating the web.
