    Would anyone who attended our last meetup be interested in presenting a short talk about something you've worked on with Meteor?

    Would it be possible to get the slides for the presentations, for future reference?

    Great group of people. Fascinating talks. Worth the any JavaScript developer who loves the bleeding edge.

    For any who plan on coding along with me this evening, I suggest installing both Meteor and Meteorite beforehand. I'll touch on installing the two briefly, but I won't be pausing in my talk to wait for installations to complete.

    Meteor is, of course, at, and Meteorite is at

    I look forward to seeing you all there!

    Hey. Thanks for starting this meetup topic in pdx. Angular js has a meetup competing with this day/time. Pretty big usually. Letting you know.

      Thank you for bringing this to our attention! I am attempting to reschedule the venue, but I'm not sure it will be possible at this point. We will certainly try not to conflict with AngularJS in the future.

      Alright, we've successfully rescheduled for Tuesday, February 18.
