In Detail

With so many JavaScript frameworks and libraries out there, it’s difficult to keep up with the latest and best techniques for building responsive, robust web and mobile applications. Meteor is an incredibly powerful, impossibly fun platform for building modern, responsive web and mobile applications. As new and exciting techniques emerge, technologies like Meteor that adopt principles such as modular components, full-stack reactivity, and data on the wire are leading the charge towards truly effective application development. Meteor stands out from the crowd as the choice for web and mobile application development.

Learning Meteor Application Development will get you up and running on the Meteor platform, and have you well on your way to creating powerful, effective web and mobile applications in hours instead of weeks. By taking advantage of all of Meteor’s efficient development capabilities, you can take your development skills to the next level, and build those “killer apps” you’ve been dreaming about.

We'll begin by installing Meteor, configuring the development environment and building a baseline application, allowing us to quickly and easily create a fully functional application.

Then we’ll create a full-stack application, and build a simple, elegant, data-reactive UI. We will connect that UI to back-end services by creating a MongoDB data collection, Meteor DDP services, and a RESTful API.

As we come to the end we will test our application and deploy it to Meteor’s servers or to a customized production environment, so that we can show it off to the world!

Comments about oreilly Learning Meteor Application Development:


* Nice step by step walkthrough of building a meteor app
* Covers useful packages for getting started quickly
* Includes deployment scenarios


* No real overview of the components of Meteor as a platform

Summary: good for getting your feet wet and learning the basic workflow. Worthwhile for Safari subscribers, but the standalone cost could be less.
