Description

IMPORTANT: This course has been completely updated for Meteor 1.3.

Meteor is an AMAZING framework for building modern, real-time web applications with JavaScript, and this course covers everything you need to get started. Inside, you'll find:

  • Detailed training material that's carefully constructed for beginning developers. I assume as little as possible and take you every tiny step of the process.
  • A proven method for learning Meteor quickly. I've written a book about Meteor (available on Amazon) and it's overwhelmingly positive reviews all confirm that there's no better option available.
  • Ongoing updates as Meteor evolves. The course is already current and it's going to remain that way. Meteor is growing quickly and you'll receive free updates as the course adapts to future changes.

The course itself contains 2 hours of video training content, all of which is focused on building a single web application with Meteor.

This approach means:

  • You can feel the satisfaction of building something real.
  • We can explore a range of Meteor's most central features.
  • You won't struggle to progress beyond the course.

Because, ultimately, I intend for this course to act as a bridge. It won't just teach you the basics of Meteor. It'll prepare you for self-education as a developer, and that's a powerful place to be.

Who is the target audience?
  • Beginning web developers.
  • Front-end developers looking for something new.
  • People completely new to Meteor.

I started building websites at the age of twelve, made some pocket money as a teenager, then started to experiment with making videos on YouTube in my early twenties. Since then, I've built a channel with 76,000+ subscribers, over 30,000,000 views, and it's a big part of how I make my living online. I also own a blog and a forum and do a little bit of teaching (obviously).
