The aim of The Node Beginner Book is to get you started with developing applications for Node.js, teaching you everything you need to know about advanced JavaScript along the way on 59 pages.

Praise for The Node Beginner Book:

"This is one of the best tutorials I've read. As a former Java coder, I've always found JavaScript to be a black art, but you have really simplified things with this tutorial."

"I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for writing such an excellent introduction to node. Your book's explanation is fantastic!"

"This is one of the few beginner articles I made it all the way through because of how well it's written."

Your First Meteor Application

A Complete Beginner's Guide to Meteor.js

Note: I'll be releasing a screencast series based on this book and subscribers to the Meteor Tips newsletter will get a huge discount on these screencasts. You can click here to register for the newsletter to access that same discount.


There's three things I love about the Meteor JavaScript framework:

  • You can build entire web applications with nothing but JavaScript.
  • Your applications are real-time by default, similar to desktop applications.
  • There's a lot of books and screencasts to help you along the way.

Oh, and Meteor also happens to be designed for developer happiness and is a great fit for beginners and, well, that's more than three things. Point is: I am well and truly on the Meteor bandwagon and I plan to be here for a long while.

But anyway, like I mentioned, there's a lot of books and screencasts dedicated to Meteor. There's Discover Meteor, Evented Mind, a course from PluralSight, and quite a few more. It might seem strange to mention my "competitors" on this page but I don't feel like we're competing since this book — Your First Meteor Application – isn't meant for the same audience.

This book is designed for beginners and only for beginners, meaning:

  • You won't need any prior experience with Meteor.
  • You won't need to have made a web application before.
  • You won't need to consult other sources along the way.

Do other resources accomodate for beginners? Yep. But not with this level of depth. As long as you have a basic idea of JavaScript and databases, you'll have a handle on the Meteor fundamentals in a matter of hours. Then, from there:

  • You'll know how to talk in the language of Meteor.
  • You'll be more capable of consulting other resources.
  • You'll be able to start playing with your own code.

Your First Meteor Application is not a definitive guide to Meteor. You won't be a full-fledged developer by the final page. You will, however, understand the core concepts that will make your future education in Meteor a lot more approachable.

If that sounds like a fit for you, it probably is.

If it doesn't sound like a fit, then you're probably right.

In either case, the entire book can be read online for free.
