    Talk by Chris was especially, as it introduced us to DDP and illustrated with a simple demo the major pluses of using Meteor instead of HTTP for realtime interactivity in our apps. Sam's talk was professional enough, but was a little flippant in tossing out jargon that went unexplained (e.g., use of "stubs" in unit testing).
