This is the first edition in what I hope will be a multi-part series covering Ember. In this screencast, I give some background information on who and how this screencast might help you get started with using Ember to build real production applications.
A big part of the learning curve to Ember is in the setup. What's important to me is to find a way to separate my front-end & back-end codebases without inconveniencing my development workflow. As a result, this guide will show you how to build an Ember project with Lineman that proxies API requests back to a separate Rails application which will provide a JSON API using ActiveModel::Serializers.
Here are some links to things covered or mentioned in the screencast:

- Test Double
- Ruby on Rails
