This week was a big one for the Meteor development platform, with the much-anticipated 1.0 release going live. Next week will be big, too! Thursday, November 6, is Worldwide Meteor Day! Meteor Charlotte will be marking the occasion with a special meetup.

We will be getting together at Packard Place in Uptown Charlotte. Doors will open at 6:30 PM with pizza and beer provided by XORCODE and Classic Graphics. There will be an Introduction to Meteor presentation at 7:00 and a deploy-fest immediately thereafter. Members will be available to assist those who need a hand getting Meteor up and running on their machines. At 8:00, there will be a live video chat with developers from the Meteor Development Group, the core team that developed the framework, along with meetup groups from around the world. Aftwards, anyone who wants to will have an opportunity to show off any of the neat things they have built with the platform. We will close out the night with more socializing, coworking and some hacking.

For those not familiar with Meteor, its creators describe it as “[…] a complete open source platform for building web and mobile apps in pure JavaScript.” If you are a developer looking to find out what’s next in web & mobile, come out to Worldwide Meteor Day and see what all the fuss is about. And if you are a beginner looking to learn how to develop for the web, Meteor is a great place to start. Even though 1.0 not even a week old, Meteor has been around for a couple years now, and there are already a ton of great resources available to help you get started. Meteor Day will be a fun way to get your feet wet.

Hope to see you there!
