Meteor Hack Day

  • Sep 21, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • Makeshift HQ #0002 (not the old one)

Meteor hack day. Come one, come all, to the meteor hack day carnival. An exploration into the wonderful reactive and realtime world of JavaScript, Node, MongoDB, WebSockets and magic.

Bring your laptops, ideas, and open minds. We're going to build some simple, fancy, awesome and just plain crazy demos. Demos! Demos! Demos! Then, the clever bit, a show & tell session to share our findings.

Everyone is welcome, JavaScript experience a bonus. Extra credit for installing meteor before you get there.

    re: makeshift hq - are there any special instructions about getting into the building? i.e. secret handshakes with the security guards. is there a phone number we can call on the off chance we get lost?

    September 20, 2013

    • Oli Z.

      We'll be there before 10, and feel free can call me on[masked] if anyone gets lost.

    Streaming xD?

    September 19, 2013

    • Oli Z.

      We'll try and stream the show and tell at the end of the day. We could set up a hangout while we hack if people are interested.

      1 · September 20, 2013

  • Oli Z.

    To those about to hack, we salute you. There'll be a couple of introductory lighting talks, @choosenick will be on hand in the morning to help wrangle ideas into plans, and for anyone that is new to Meteor and looking to learn, there'll be preview of the LxJS Meteor workshop by @_alanshaw, @cwaring and I

    Those already comfortable with Meteor are encouraged to bring any ideas, half baked projects & come help each other build some awesome. We've got a pile people on the wait-list so if you know you can't make it, please, **please** remember to update your RSVP status so someone else can come.
