Meteor.js - Killing Dinosaurs with JavaScript (Guy Royse)

63 million years ago, the dinosaurs were destroyed by a big rock from space. In this session, we'll kill some more!

Meteor.js is one of the many new JavaScript frameworks to come our way in the past few years.  But this one is a little different because Meteor makes it dead simple to write real-time JavaScript applications.  Real-time applications that update all content for all users all the time.  No waiting.  No hassles.And we'll use it to live-code an application -- one that kills dinosaurs --which we will then live-deploy so everyone can help

Bio

Guy works for Pillar Technology in Columbus, Ohio as an instructor, a consultant, and a software engineer.  He has programmed in numerous languages --many of them semi-colon delimited -- but has more recently been working with Ruby and JavaScript.  He is also the chief organizer for the Columbus JavaScript User Group and is active in the local development community.


In his personal life, Guy is a hard-boiled geek interested in role-playing games, science fiction, and technology.  He also has a slightly less geeky interest in history and linguistics.  In his spare time he volunteers as Cubmaster for his kids' Cub Scout Pack.

      I was seeing it in the confirmation email. Brian was correct, it was set to PDT, I just didn't notice it. Thanks for the responses fellas.

    Yixing - The seating count is established by the location host (and often the fire marshal). We do need to honor that. That being said, most of the time, the seat count opens up the day of the event as people that cannot make it change their rsvp.

    I had to go to Chicago at the last minute, so I won't be able to make it.

    March 10, 2014

  • Jeff G.

    I'm seeing 3pm-6pm in places and 6pm in others. I just want to confirm that it starts at 6pm.

    • SEM.js

      Indeed, it is at 6PM. Sounds like a timezone setting is wrong somewhere?

    I used Firebase for a hackathon last year and was really impressed; I don't know Meteor - would Mongo+Meteor on my AWS instance be an alternative to using Firebase? This quora didn't really answer my question - http://www.quora.com/Meteor-web-framework/What-is-the-difference-between-Firebase-and-Meteor

    No slides folks, just me, Meteor, and my Macbook.
