Real Time Development of a Real Time Application using Meteor
We will build an application from scratch during the course of the talk. And as we do that, we will show live demos of the app being built.
As we build the app, we will introduce the following concepts one after the other:
- The building blocks of Meteor - Node.js, Handlebars and the plug-in ecosystem
- Seamless injection of new and updated code to live apps - Users won’t miss a thing, nor do they get disturbed.
- Automatic and real time browser side updates on data change.
- Latency compensation: How meteor creates an impression of a zero-latency connection to the database
To keep things efficient, we will have multiple incremental versions of the code already checked in to a local Git repo. We will check out and deploy new versions while introducing each new concept.
By the end of the talk, we will have a complete working chat application and would also (hopefully) have provided a good introduction to Meteor.
