- Learn to build a simple chat app with Meteor!
- Meteor Global Hackathon!
Let's get together and participate in the Meteor Global Hackathon (http://info.meteor.com/2015-hackathon)! On the weekend of October 10th and 11th, Meteor Meetup groups from around the world (http://meteor.meetup.com/) will be participating in a global hackathon. We'll all register our ideas, code together and share resources, demo our apps, and have the opportunity to send them off to the Meteor Development Group (MDG) for judging. MDG hasn't announced the final details, but we expect to video chat with other meetups in our timezone, and possibly with Core Meteor developers (like last year). The plan locally is to get together in the morning and code through the evening, when we'll have demos! We'll take a break around noon for lunch, and feel free to come as late or leave as early as you'd like. If you want your app to be judged by MDG and entered to win prizes, you can register on the announcement page (http://info.meteor.com/2015-hackathon). But if you don't, no worries! You can still come and we'll brainstorm when we get there. If you're looking for an idea or partner to hack with, comment on this event or reach out to the community on twitter! We're looking for sponsors, but as of now no food will be provided.

- Meteor Hacking and Coffee
These hack nights seem to be working great; there's always lots of collaboration and learning at all levels. Maybe after another one or two we'll do some more lightning talks to show off what everyone's been accomplishing! This is a casual event for hacking on personal projects and chatting about Meteor. I am also happy to walk anyone through the tutorial, and do my best to explain Meteor concepts. All skill levels are welcome, and please feel free to come and leave at your leisure. Bring a bug or an app idea, come and offer your experience, or just come to hang out and learn! New Moon has lots of space and outlets. If you're driving, the easiest place to park is probably the Marketplace Parking Garage. See you there!

The lightning talks at the last event went great. Let's meet at a cafe and work on our projects! This is a casual event for hacking on personal projects and chatting about Meteor.

- Informal Meteor App Demos and Hacking/Socializing
The Designbook entrance is across from the Farmhouse. The doors to the building lock automatically at 6pm. We'll be there to let you in, and we'll post our numbers on the doors to call if you arrive late. Schedule: 6:30 - 7:15: Informal demos, show your Meteor project big or small! 7:15 - 8:30: Socializing and Hacking on the projects just shown! Join us for an evening of casual Meteor app demos, hacking, and socializing. First, we'll do informal demos; show your Meteor project big or small! Did you add accounts to the tutorial app? Did you create your own large app from scratch? Share it with the group! If you feel comfortable, this will be a great time to show your app, talk about challenges and successes, and get feedback. This meetup is a safe place to give your first talk; that's the reason we're having it! Please contact me if you have questions. Second, we'll hack on the projects presented, and see if we can help each other out with bugs. This will also be a great time to get help with the tutorial or a Meteor concept. All skill levels are welcome, and free pizza and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided. See you there! Thanks to Designbook for hosting! We'll either be in the conference room or the larger room, based on attendance.
- Meteor Hacking and Coffee
Let's meet at New Moon Cafe for some Meteor hacking and coffee! This is a smaller casual event for hacking on personal projects and chatting about Meteor. All skill levels are welcome, and feel free to come and leave at your leisure. Bring a bug or an app idea, come and offer your experience, or just come to hang out and learn! The easiest place to park is probably the Marketplace Parking Garage. See you there!
- Meteor Tutorial Walkthrough and Hack Night!
Join us for another night of Meteor hacking and learning! Last time everyone split into pairs to walk through the tutorial or learn by hacking on their own projects. It worked well, so let's try it again! Pizza and non-alcoholic drinks will be provided. These are casual events. All ideas for event formats or activities will be accepted and appreciated, and my guess is that we'll end up making the final decision as a group before we start. Please use the comments or message me directly if you have any suggestions/questions/concerns. See you there! Rob and MWG have so graciously offered to host again. (Thanks!) Parking: Check out the MWG parking page (http://www.meetup.com/Meteor-Burlington/pages/MWG_parking/) if you need help/details.
- Meteor Hack Night!
Join us for another night of Meteor hacking and learning! Last time all groups built and hosted a simple chatroom page, and one group even implemented accounts and data security! The goal of this event will be to build on the last, without excluding newcomers. I'm still deciding on the format, so while I'll be making a final decision as the organizer, please feel free to discuss in the comments or message me directly! All ideas will be accepted and appreciated, and my guess is that we'll end up making the final decision as a group when we all arrive, which worked out well last time. Rob and MWG have so graciously offered to host again. (Thanks!) Parking: Check out the MWG parking page (http://www.meetup.com/Meteor-Burlington/pages/MWG_parking/) if you need help/details.
