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!
