About

Meteor takes many of the cutting edge breakthroughs in web applications that until now have been reserved for larger companies, and makes them available to everyone. Meteor completely rethinks the standard model of web apps, in order to create fast, fluid, and engaging content.

Instant Meteor JavaScript Framework Starter takes a behind the scenes look at Meteor, showing you not only the code, but the processes as well. Being completely different from your typical web framework, Meteor requires a dramatically new train of thought when constructing your apps, which we will explore throughout the course of this book.

This book starts from the beginning; you don’t need to know about Meteor, NoSQL databases, or even programming best practices, but by the end of the book you should be well versed in each of these.

In this book you will learn about the issues that led to the creation of Meteor, and how it fixes these issues. You will learn about writing code for an MVVM architecture and about structuring your code for security and efficiency. We will cover topics such as securing your data and access control, as well as deploying the finished product to the Web.

If you have been thinking about getting into this exciting new framework, then Instant Meteor JavaScript Framework Starter is your one-way pass to a painless and fun trip to becoming a pro.
