Meteor Introduction (www.meteor.com) - JS web platform

Im happy to announce that this month, basel.js regular Felix Rabe is going to be presenting Meteor.

"

I'm giving a presentation about the new buzz-word platform Meteor (www.meteor.com), "A better way to build apps" with Javascript on the client and the server. I plan to start with an introduction, and then write a small sample application (a simple Wiki) from scratch.

"

Bring a laptop if you want to follow along.

As always, followed by snacks & drinks.

C ya!

    I had a good comment from Reto that it would have been nice to have a discussion round after the presentation. I agree. Hopefully folks had a chance to discuss afterwards during drink/snack time.
    But I'll try to schedule things in the future to ensure that we have a "reflection round" after the prezzies.

    But yeah - Interesting topic, well presented Felix. Its always interesting to have some live coding and see how other people work. (play?)

    Presentation (and license) is now included in the demo @ https://github.com/rabe-io/meteoriki. The accounts-ui didn't work yesterday because I had added it to the wrong project. Ok, that's it for the spam :) - cu next time!

    More info: Check out the two www.meteor.com screencasts. Also, https://www.eventedmind.com/posts has a bunch of these. And if you got hooked and want to work through a book, http://www.discovermeteor.com/ is a great one.

    Sorry, won't make it today. We had a big sprint the last two days and are pretty exhausted now.

    Sure, bring a laptop, but you won't be bored if you don't :). In case you are on Windows, please install Meteor beforehand (http://win.meteor.com/), as I cannot help you with that. Installation on OSX and Linux is pretty painless and will be covered during the presentation if required.

      Hi Felix

      Do I download the exe bootstrapper or
      MSI installer of Meteor ? I have windows 7 on my Laptop

      September 3, 2013

    • Felix R.

      As the MSI installer is labelled as "legacy", and the exe bootstrapper is the first link, I think it is safe to go with the bootstrapper. There is more information on GitHub at https://github.com/sda...­.
