Meteor is an ultra-simple environment for building modern websites. What once took weeks, even with the best tools, now takes hours with Meteor. And with the approach of Meteor version 1.0 -- sometime soon in 2014 -- the excitement over Meteor is definitely building.
In a simplified and shorter version of their course, Paul Dowman and the good folks from OK GROW! will be building a simple Meteor app, from the ground up! Come out and see some of the thinking that goes into building a Meteor web application.
Plus, and as usual... If you are working on something... Come show us your stuff!!! Email me with the details of what you would like to share with the group, and I'll reserve a spot for you. (Click on my profile, then click "Send email".) Nothing finalized? Come and show us anyway... we'd love to see it.
(Note the agenda may be changed from time to time. Check back often.)

* We have all sorts of audiovisual connections at our disposal. If anyone wants to present something cool they've done with Meteor, or some nice snippet of related code, we'd be keen to check it out. (If you are working on something but it's not yet ready, let us know ... perhaps you can introduce it at the next event. Thanks in advance.)
