Stuck In The Middle...
I'm in a sort of unique position to discuss this subject. I have a lot of experience with Angular, and I'm now working at Netflix with an Ember core team member, Erik Bryn.
I have spent the past two years or so developing large single page applications in Angular. I've contributed more than a thousand lines of code to Angular 1.3. I'm a "gold badge" holder for Angular on Stack Overflow. I've spoken at a few events about Angular; Nothing "big time", but apparently I've fooled enough people into thinking I know what I'm doing to be considered an "expert". A lot of that is just the luck of when I got into Angular, and my willingness to share my experience in Angular with others.
My Ember credentials are much lighter (for now). As I stated above, I'm currently working on a team at Netflix alongside Erik Bryn, an Ember core team member. The project I'm working on at Netflix is extremely ambitious, it's a ton of fun to work on, and it's the sort of thing where I'm tossed into the deep end, solving pretty interesting problems in Ember, that are actually a lot more complicated than problems I solved in previous Angular projects.
This was originally going to be just one post, but the size of it was out of control. I'm going to try to bust it into several posts that, hopefully will make it more consumable. As time goes on, I plan to post more in-depth comparisons of individual features in each library as well, which I will also link in this series.
What this series is
- It's meant to to be an honest comparison between two frameworks.
- A love affair with both frameworks.
- A plea to those with bias to toss that bias aside and examine the frameworks more carefully and appreciate them for what they are. Brilliant.
What this series is NOT
- This series will not make everyone happy.
- This is not a "which should you choose?" examination.
- This is not a contest or an attempt to convert anyone from one framework to another.
- This is not meant to be an indictment of either one of these frameworks as being flawed.
- This is not an attempt to proclaim one of these frameworks to be perfect.
