This course gets right under the hood of the Meteor platform, demonstrating how to take advantage of its powerful development engine to build exciting, versatile applications.
We start by carefully designing an application structure, building a single page layout with multipage routing, and adding authentication. We'll expose database data, and then look at how to work with subscriptions and queries. Then, we dive into the options for templating, with a look at dynamic Blaze templates and the Spacebars templating language. You'll learn event handling and then test our application using Cucumber and Jasmine. After that, we deploy our application locally on the Meteor server, and then to Amazon to set it up for frequent updates and hot code deployment. Finally, you'll learn how to work with third-party integrations, and set up REST endpoints to interact with other external services such as PayPal.
This course will help you to work at your own pace while mastering the patterns used to define all of the critical pieces of a web application.
