Where is the Ember community?

A collection of places and channels where embereños help each other.

Newsletter

If you were to take away a single thing from this post I would like it to be the Ember Weekly newsletter, subscribe to it and you'll get a nice update on Ember things every Sunday.

Chat about it

There are lots of folks giving help and asking for help in the Freenode IRC channels #emberjs and #ember-cli. Just:

/join #emberjs
/join #ember-cli

Recently an Ember community Slack was created, you can get your invite here ember-community-slackin.herokuapp.com and after registering you'll login here: embercommunity.slack.com

You'll find over 30 channels, some of them are:

  • #jobs
  • #announcements

Of course you'll also find Ember topics in stablished websites, follow the subreddit /r/emberjs and the Stack Overflow tags ember.js and ember-cli.
