Ember.js Lunch Talk at Carbon Five

Four days after it was announced as Amber.js, it was renamed to Ember.js due to some naming collisions with Amber Smalltalk, a Smalltalk implementation written in JavaScript.

If you are new to ember.js, Derick Bailey of Watch Me Code and Backbone Training fame shares his initial impressions (compared to backbone), as well as thoughts on handling DOM events.

Also, above I’m linking out to a video of Tom Dale (and Yehuda Katz) discussing ember.js over lunch at Carbon Five. There’s 45 minutes of presentation plus 20 minutes of Q&A.
