London Code Dojo 23 - Meteor hack

This evening we'll explore what it takes to produce a simple web app using the Meteor.js framework. Please make sure that you have the framework installed before you arrive on the evening. PLEASE NOTE: I'm not aware of getting Meteor up and running on Windows machines other than in a Linux or OSX VM e.g. VirtualBox.

    I'm really glad you all had a great time, I'll be looking to take some hints about other interesting tools or technologies that people would be interested in hacking on.

    Was great to get this first taster of meteor. Thanks Nigel and BioMed Central. And thanks to Edward and Dave for making sure our exercise code actually worked...:-)

    We had the chance to break the ice with this very promising framework.
    For a guy like me, with no javascript experience, it was really nice to pair up with a more experienced developer - thanks Alex :)

    A few spots opened up at the last minute so I was able to move a few from the waitlist.

    Bad week. I'm very sorry, but I cannot make it tonight. Inlaws just dropped in.

    Has anyone done anything with Meteor and DDP (Distributed Data Protocol)? I'm toying with using Meteor as a front end for an application written in python, but although there is a python DDP client there does not seem to be a python DDP server. I'd be interested in comparing notes with anyone trying something along the same lines.

    This has inspired me to finally dual-boot my laptop - I can report that Wubi ( is an astonishingly painless way to co-install Ubuntu. Don't know why I didn't do this years ago...

    • Francis N.

      Most unfortunate. But maybe my next laptop will have Ubuntu pre-installed... ;)

      I've had quite good results using Vagrant to spin up Virtual Box virtual-machines for this kind of thing.
