Yep, I agree on the part of MDG. I just think Qualia is doing their best to solve exactly this issue, and thanks to them at least we now know something, so we should thank them
It’s a shame Sashko is gone at MDG, he was very active in keeping touch with the community. I just think they are missing some of those profiles in the team. However, it seems they have been pretty successful in building a community for Apollo, so I am hopeful they will apply these learnings to Meteor as their focus shifts back to the framework now.
I have to admit I have also been a little nervous from the lack of communication (although Meteor is working fine as is, still using it daily in multiple projects), but with the new funding round I am confident they can and will give Meteor some lovin’. Especially when they find a way make it a little more ‘shiney’ like Apollo (instead of being the boring old backwards compatible workhorse that no one really wants to work on). That’s why I am heartened reading Ben’s slides: it seems he is finally passionate about Meteor again. Disclaimer: of course I have no idea about Ben’s motivations, feelings, or priorities Just guessing based on observation.
