Hi Meteorites!

There's been a lot happening lately, so I thought I'd share them with you in a brief note.

  • Meteor 1.5 announcement. Last week, MDG announced the Meteor 1.5 release. Coming out on the heels of April's 1.4.4 release, this makes me feel that MDG is still very much behind the platform. It features dynamic import, bundle vizualizer, exact code splitting, and immutable caching, among other things. Read Ben Newman's announcement post to learn more, and don't forget to look at the release notes too.Yay, Ben!
  • June DevShop on 6/27. This will be the third themed DevShop. Persistence Options in Meteor/JS will cover alternative storage solutions in the marketplace and how they can be used in a realtime, reactive JavaScript application. We're working with Couchbase, Cockroach Labs, and Neo4J for speakers, and Mike Jansen has offered to present on KDB, a time series database. Slots are still open, so if you can present on Apollo, Redis, MySQL, Postgres, Oracle, or someotherfunkydatabase, fill out the speaker form and get on the list.
  • May Devshop recap. Our second themed DevShop (Meteor/JS in Finance) took place on May 23rd at MasterCard's HQ here in NYC. This was a new venue for us, and well-attended. Check out some of the photos (! Kevin Ansari and Shahin Rawther showed off Parlend, a reverse auction marketplace for mortgage borrowers. Jon Perle and Mike Jansen (Mies Jansen) demoed Crystal, a production workflow application for fixed income traders. Ben Flast presented MasterCard Developers, a resource for developers for building ecommerce and payment solutions. And Sacha Greif joined us remotely from Japan to introduce Vulcan, Telescope's successor. About 10 of us decamped for Old Town Bar afterwards to extend the meetup with some of the speakers; all I know is I made it home around 1:30 AM. Many thanks to all the speakers, and to MasterCard for hosting and MDG for providing food and refreshments, as usual.
  • May Hack Night recap. Sacha Greif generously provided a hands-on Vulcan workshop for all attendees, again rising early in Japan to do so remotely. Feedback from attendees was positive. Thank you again, Sacha!!
  • Survey for hackNY. hackNY aims to federate the next generation of hackers in NYC. hackNY is trying to refine their summer fellows to best support the NYC technology community. This survey will help them get feedback on how to best accomplish that. And it's especially helpful if you're part of the startup community.
  • DeveloperWeek NY 2017. DeveloperWeek NY kicks off on June 20th, and MDG has partnered with them. (Here's the invitation: I'll be in Chicago for MongoDB World 2017 for those same days, so let me know how it goes.
  • ReactRiot Online Hackathon. The ReactRiot online hackathon is scheduled for June 24-25. Member Pol Guixe Jove posted it to the message boards and is looking for a partner(s). If you're interested in working with him, reach out. Go participate (with him or others) and come back to tell us about it. I love hearing those stories.

Have a great week!
