About the authors

David Tang is a Software Engineer from Los Angeles with over 10 years of working experience in web development. His software career has led him to work with companies of all sizes and use many different technologies on both the back-end and front-end for building web applications. Ultimately he found his passion on the front-end in building applications with rich user experiences. He has worked with several JavaScript frameworks, but was drawn to Ember because of the community's values in convention over configuration, developer testing, and the commitment to providing an upgrade path for new major releases. He values the framework's opinionated way of working with APIs and managing data in a client-side JavaScript application with its companion library Ember Data. Since David was introduced to Ember, he has spent a lot of time blogging, teaching, and building applications with Ember and Ember Data. David is also an adjunct faculty member at the University of Southern California, teaching web development courses.
