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.

This video will offer an overview of the course.
Understanding what makes Meteor different and explaining web sockets and reactivity.
A folder setup can be almost anything. We show a proven structure.
Without authorizing, our application is insecure. So, secure the application.
More information than just an e-mail is required from the user. Add profile information.
Specific areas of the application should be accessible to administrators only.
Without collections, you can't make any data persist. So add collections.
Database functions performed from the client are not secure. Add methods to the server.
Applying additional information to every query is necessary. Add a hook before an insert.
Adding dynamic variables in a template requires a handlebars type language.
Some elements can repeat throughout the application.
Replacing template data dynamically requires helpers.
Managing application state can help to make the application more responsive.
Database interaction is not secure when done from the client
Methods should incorporate some permissions logic
Before invoking a server method, you should validate the data coming in
Create, read, update, and delete are all common functions applied to a collection
Building a Meteor application is most quickly facilitated by developing locally first
Testing on the Internet would normally require you to purchase hosting and a domain
Deploy to an enterprise-level hosting provider
