About This Class

Meteor is a next generation dynamic JavaScript framework, a full stack framework running on the server and client. It has a Mongo style datastore on the client, giving it incredible performance and reactivity.

The class will be a bare bones introduction to this new technology. We’ll start with some prototyping basics, show you how Meteor works, and cover when and where to use it. Finally, we’ll craft a completely new application in front of your eyes. You’ll leave the class being able to do the same.

In this session, we will cover:

  • Rapid Prototyping: Best practices for fast prototyping
    • Turning an idea into an MVP
    • Build - Measure - Learn feedback loop.
    • Initial prototyping using wireframe and mockup.
  • Why Meteor?
    • What is Meteor and why Meteor is a great tool for start-ups
  • Reactive Vision
    • What is reactivity in a web app?
    • Understand how reactivity works in Meteor
  • Live Demo
    • We’re going to develop a new app live
  • Q&A

Audience Pre-reqs:

  • Basic web programming skills (HTML/CSS/JS)
  • Preferably understand Coffeescript syntax
  • Desire to learn about new technology
  • Passionate about start-ups
