    This was fun! Looking forward to the next one. Maybe an intermediate class?

    This was a great event. It's exciting to see that people are using Meteor's feature set to make apps that will create unique developer and user experiences.

    I think it's important and cool to note that people are now taking some of the Meteor features as given abstractions to be relied on and focusing their time and energy developing apps and creating experiences instead of ahh-ing and ohh-ing over Meteor itself.

    I left the devshop inspired.

    Hi, I am going to be attending and I'm brand new to coding and writing javascript. I have a Windows 7 laptop - will I be able to participate using this? I know there has been a Windows version of Meteor unofficially authored so just wanted to see if I needed to install this or whether it is mac only?

      Scrap that, managed to get my hands on a mac! See you there!

      There are several informative threads on meteor-talk about using Vagrant or other ways to use Meteor with Windows.­

    I hope to make the 101 for sure, and some of the rest. Anything I should have prepared on my laptop running Ubuntu 12.04? At another recent meetup (not meteor, but another JS topic), it was difficult to keep up as I learned the hard way about many node-related and other dependencies.

    I hope Naomi is planning to hold another breakout session. The last 'Meteor 101' session was great.

    • Rafiki C.

      Yay!!! Will Naomi repeat the session from last time, or will there be a forward trajectory in the presentation; at least demo'ing Meteor ease via the building of another app?

      April 24, 2013

    • Alice Y.

      Good question: Meteor 101 is meant as a stand-alone intro for first-timers, so it will be similar to last time. That way, people who need a refresher or weren't around last time for Meteor 101 can ask questions.

      Even if you've already done Meteor 101, you can go again as a refresher, or grab a coworking table and try your hand at app-making, with help from the fellow Meteorites in the room.

      More experienced folks might also be interested in joining James Gill and Mike Risse in the front conference room.

    Just spent a couple of days making a first meteor app (a globally shared toy piano keyboard). Using meteor to do it was... uh... different. Now I have more questions than before I began.
