Meteor is a distribution of open-source packages that makes it radically faster to build modern apps. All the parts are there: a reactive template engine, powerful data synchronization primitives, a standard wire protocol, and a database API that works the same on both the client and the server. This talk will demonstrate making an app from scratch, showing how it all fits together. Read more.

A promise is a proxy for an eventual result, like an asynchronous version of return or throw, but they can also pipeline messages asynchronously to and from remote objects. A Promise type will likely be in ECMAScript 6, and many modern libraries use them already. In this talk, I will bring you up to speed with what they are and what you can do with them today…and what they “promise” for tomorrow. Read more.

I'll translate some of the most important functional patterns & interfaces in JS directed towards us object orienters who may not have majored in math. You'll leave with a killer toolset and you'll weep at the beauty...if you have a heart. Read more.

But defending against them requires new tools and techniques. This talk will illustrate best practices for securing these apps, and introduce some of the security conventions and tools we've built into Meteor, a full-stack JavaScript framework. Read more.
