Be ready for coding away next week using Meteor
About the Book
You're a developer who knows nothing to Meteor. Which is fine, except that you need to start coding your next application using Meteor.
Don't worry: I have you covered. I've been training hundreds of developers like you during 15 years, and converted my experience into this book. I know from experience teaching what takes more time to learn in Meteor, and will spend time only where appropriate.
Plus this book is packed with exercises which build up into a full project: you develop a small e-commerce application. You’ll allow users to browse for products, add them to their basket, and you’ll also create a full back-end where the site administrators will be able to list, create, modify, and delete products.
Read this book, and you can code your Meteor application within a week. Or your money back.
Note: this books is based on Meteor 1.3 and is currently being updated to Meteor 1.5.2.
