We don't always have the luxury of designing an application's front and back ends together. However, when we do, it makes sense to mesh them as closely as possible. This talk will focus on optimizing a backend API for use with Ember Data.
Ember Data has been steadily expanding its capabilities in the past year. It now supports a number of different data relationships, embedded and "side loaded" data, and even bulk commit operations. Serializers and mappings help translate between your API and your Ember models. This talk will explore front and back end code that illustrates these capabilities.
Because Ember Data features "out-of-the-box support for Rails apps that follow the active_model_serializers gem's conventions", the examples in this talk will utilize active_model_serializers to build an API. However, the examples will focus on API endpoints and therefore be easily translatable to other tech stacks.
