    Hi folks - thanks very much for listening and participating in the talk. In case useful, I posted slides from the talk here: http://www.slideshare.net/nitya/meteor-js-gdg25sep2013

    As always, if you think there could be value to deep-dives talks in this topic, do let me know :-)

    And yes, I made my train on time.. so a huge thank you for that as well.

      Sad I couldnt make it, was viewing a apartment and it ended up taking much longer than I thought plus I wasnt sure how long the meetup went on for. Hopefully their will be another one.

    I noticed that Meteor JS is built using node.js. Can we discuss how one can leverage nodejs knowledge to use Meteor?

      You could technically do so by running the server side of user management on Node (as Joshua pointed out) and then manually building the client-side interactions using basic JS wrangling. But I would love to know why you want to use your own scheme. One of the key aspects I liked about Meteor was their built-in support for user/accounts management -- which gives you single sign on with a variety of providers (social) with the inclusion of a single line of code.

      Because I've already written a backend for an IOS api and would like to use Meteor to create a front end webite

    I'd love to make this, is the 120 person limit going to be strict?

    My apologies for not providing a more detailed talk abstract (it was a fairly spontaneous decision to do this talk) - but I am glad to see so much interest in the topic. Bring your questions and fire away -- I'll do my best to answer all and sundry :-)

    Given this is the first time I (or anyone?) brought up the topic of MeteorJS at GDH, I was going to go for a beginner-intermediate intro to the subject. However, if time and interest permits, I'd be glad to field questions and get discussion going on this (possibly as fodder for a future talk too).

    My current thinking is to focus on:
    - what is meteorjs (i.e., what is it good for)
    - what are the basic features & differentiators (i.e., how do I use it)
    - how do I get started (i.e., simple app/code walkthrough)
    - how can I do more (tutorial resources & code packages)
    - intro to advanced topics (to gauge interest)
    - q&a

    I will cover more (or less) of that agenda based on how much time I actually have :-) See you all tomorrow.

    Everyone: Please use the entrance on 8th Ave closest to 16th St (this is different than what we've done in past months). The event is on the 5th floor of the 111 8th Ave building.

    Please describe meteor.js in greater detail here. The website says it combines js utilities and is easier, but does not say why.

      MeteorJS is mainly used to build SPA (single page application) websites. It allows the ability to load different pages according to the URI and create routes as well as use placeholders similar to Laravel and Express.js. It also allows other things like setting templates, interpolation, and meteor streams for real-time applications which personally reminds me a lot of socket.io for node.js. I'm sure they will cover more at the meetup :)
