    Great presentation tonight from Yuriy - well prepped deck. Was worth the drive from Whistler for Team PayrollHero.
    Thank you Cliff and Yuriy!

    There was little information about Meteor beyond what the front page of the project says. There was no mention of Bootstrap at all. There was a plug for the presenter's company that had very little to do with the topic at hand.

    Does anyone have a Apple USB Ethernet Adapter for Macbook Air?
    I'd really appreciate if I could borrow it for the talk.
    Looking forward to seeing you all tonight!

    Having built an application using meteor and Bootstrap, I will be very interested in any additional info.

      Actually, if you have experience with scaleability, that would be good. I'm working on a pretty thorny issue right this minute. This is scaleability with large result sets, not number of clients.

    • Yuriy Dybskiy

      Scott, I think I ran into similar issues recently myself. I'll address that issue in the talk
