Ember Resources

I’ve heard lots of good noises coming from the Ember camp lately, so I started diving in a couple weeks ago. I’m really excited with what I’ve seen, but getting started is still harder than it should be. The documentation is improving rapidly, but it was still difficult to get over the initial hump. We’re super lucky to have @workmanw here in town. He’s a Sproutcore veteran and Ember promoter who’s also been really helpful with questions we’ve had along the way. I also compiled this list of what I found to be the most helpful.
