Ember is growing every day, and EmberConf is the best place to meet the folks behind the magic. You'll hear from members of the Ember Core Team, top community contributors and users, and be the first to know what to expect for the future of Ember.
Along with the two days of Conference Sessions, we've got opt-in trainings and activities. Check out the in-progress Schedule for details.
We've reserved discounted blocks of rooms at the nearby Portland DoubleTree and Crowne Plaza hotels. Both are a quick walk or one/two-stop ride on the MAX from the convention center. The room blocks are limited and expected to sell out (the DoubleTree is mostly full already), so reserve your spot ASAP.
Like last year, we're organizing discounted trainings to run alongside EmberConf; these happen at the same time as our Monday activities, so you can only choose one or the other. Trainings will take place at the conference venue.
This training will be delivered by Igor Terzic, newest member of the Ember core team.
While using Ember Data's
RESTAdapter is pretty smooth, sometimes your server requires you to dive deep and use a fully custom adapter. This workshop will show you how to implement the basic adapter and serializer hooks on your own.
When you finish this course, you'll be able to get going quickly with Ember Data with your very own adapter for custom backend APIs. And even if you still use the
RESTAdapter, you'll have a better understanding of how it all works under the hood.

This training will be delivered by The Frontside. They'll be joined by Ember CLI creator Stefan Penner for the Q&A portion of the class.
You've almost certainly heard that it's time to move to Ember CLI. For a lot of us, it can seem a little intimidating. In this workshop, we'll explore Ember CLI in two stages: First, we'll build an Ember CLI app from scratch, then migrate an existing, traditional "global" style app to ES6 and Ember CLI.
You'll learn the tools, techniques, and challenges gathered from moving several production applications to Ember CLI. Whether you're an existing Ember developer or this is your first production CLI app, this workshop will equip you to start taking advantage of the fact that Ember CLI makes building client-side apps one-point-twenty-one jiggatimes more fun.
