EmberJS: A Fitting Face for a D8 Backend

EmberJS and Drupal can be used to create some really great web experiences. Over the last year, my team and I built several Ember sites using D8 as our backend API. In this session, we will delve into what we learned about Ember and how to structure our frontend data layer to take advantage of Drupal's features.

This session will include discussion on the following topics:

  • An explanation of the JSONAPI structure and how it can help you deliver a  more performant UI.
  • Solutions Ember provides for SEO.
  • A showcase of several of Ember's features that can help you in your headless journey.
  • Path structure considerations

Developers who attend this session are encouraged to know the basics of an MVC framework. Having a strong working knowledge of Javascript would be beneficial as well, as many of the examples are in JS. That said, anyone should feel open to attending!
