I played around with Meteor a while back and when I discovered that the authors of Discover Meteor were kind enough to make their book free today, I jumped at it. The book takes a ‘learn as you do’ approach and you build a fully functional web app as you go along. Concepts were laid out clearly. Each section had links to each commit for you to reference.
One key feature that I liked about Meteor is that with every change that you make to the code, the browser automatically refreshes to reflect that change. It’s a really small thing that improves the entire development experience with the immediate feedback. Overall, it was a fun read and I learnt a lot on how Meteor works and I’m totally looking forward to build a complete web app with it real soon.
