Meteor is the first open-source full stack platform for developing and deploying end-to-end JavaScript applications. With observable server side models, live DOM updates, hot code pushes, latency compensation and smart synchronization baked in, it's a leap forward in making real time collaborative web applications.

We will take a quick look at Meteor - where it came from, what it is capable of today, and where it seems to be headed. We'll also have a brief code walkthrough and demonstration of a project implemented in Backbone and Meteor.

Presented by Pallavi Anderson @pkaushik


Space, food and refreshments will be provided by Enova Financial.

    Great overview of the pros - and cons - of meteor, and some good discussion on frameworks around it.

    A lot of pro's and con's were given about Meteor.js, but I never really felt like I saw Meteor.js.
