Course Description

Master one of the most exciting full-stack JavaScript platforms to build powerful, reactive applications

About This Video

  • Dive deep into Meteor and discover how it can be used as a powerful engine to develop virtually any application
  • Immerse yourself in full-stack JavaScript and understand how much easier development can be by using JavaScript everywhere
  • Learn by doing—build a complex, feature-rich application and go further by integrating it with other frameworks

In Detail

Meteor is a powerful platform that enables end-to-end, client and server-side web application development entirely in JavaScript. It enters as an alternative to popular full-stack options such as MEAN and offers developers the opportunity to vastly simplify development concerns while building applications on the run. Meteor's reactive approach to development makes good to create real-time applications with, and the platform provides an excellent option for deployment to mobile.

      After taking this course, you will be able to:

      • This course gets right under the hood of the Meteor platform, demonstrating how to take advantage of its powerful development engine to build exciting, versatile applications.

      • We start by carefully designing an application structure, building a single page layout with multipage routing, and adding authentication. We’ll expose database data, and then look at how to work with subscriptions and queries. Then, we dive into the options for templating, with a look at dynamic Blaze templates and the Spacebars templating language. You’ll learn event handling and then test our application using Cucumber and Jasmine. After that, we deploy our application locally on the Meteor server, and then to Amazon to set it up for frequent updates and hot code deployment. Finally, you’ll learn how to work with third-party integrations, and set up REST endpoints to interact with other external services such as PayPal.

      • This course will help you to work at your own pace while mastering the patterns used to define all of the critical pieces of a web application.
