Meteor Devshop + Presentation

/* === NOTE CHANGE OF FLOOR/ROOM === */

Come join us again at what will become the monthly Meteor Toronto meetup. This event will be a chance to (mostly) code, get help or advice from others, and generally get up to speed and excel on our most favourite framework...

Meteor JS

.




This month:
Development guru and Meteor enthusiast Robert Lowe will be giving presentations about getting started with it, the basics, as well as some of the more advanced concepts.

This will be a chance to code, so bring your laptop or lug over that souped-up desktop. And we will have snacks, thanks to our sponsor... Kigono Property Management Software.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
