Bay Area Meteor Night, September 5th

I’m excited to announce that on September 5th Qualia will be hosting the second Bay Area Meteor Night of the year! See the event or the Facebook event for more details.

As always we will provide food, drinks, and time to mingle. In addition to two excellent speakers, there will also be two interactive workshops. Please bring your laptop if you wish to participate in the workshops!

These workshops will involve working in small groups to learn some little known, but extremely important, Meteor tools and techniques. This knowledge will draw from lessons Qualia has learned over the past few years running Meteor at scale, and will contain information that is likely new to the Meteor community.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Featured Talks

“Advanced Testing and Architecture with Meteor” — Joshua Ohlman (, Lead Developer)

“Staying Productive With Meteor In 2018” — Theodor Diaconu (Cult of Coders, CEO)


“Meteor Performance” — Eric Birdsall (Qualia, Software Engineer)
Learn how to effectively diagnose and fix Meteor performance issues.

“Meteor Debugging” — Travis Geis (Qualia, Software Engineer)
Learn how to quickly track down and fix bugs in your Meteor application.

Workshops consist of a brief presentation followed by break-out groups of 2-3 people working through guided exercises. Our engineers will be available to provide assistance in solving the exercises. Please bring your laptop. Both the workshops will cover a variety of techniques and tools, with an emphasis on diagnosing issues on live production servers.


Will the talks be filmed?

Yep, and live streamed!

But you should still come if you can :slight_smile:


Sorry I can’t come to the Bay Area on such short notice… I live in The Netherlands! :smile:. Anyway I’ve mentioned Meteor a couple of times during talks on several meetups organized by the company I work for (Passionate People). They organize a lot of frontend related meetups.

Maybe we should try to organize a Meteor event in Amsterdam?


You totally should! I’m not sure there’s much I can do to help but I’m happy to brainstorm with you if you’d like


Looking forward to it, I think the 20h+ flight is worth sharing experience about Meteor :smiley: To give people a hint about what staying productive means, it’s related to how we are now using Meteor together with Apollo to prototype fast and then evolve our prototype into a serious product. (Rather than rewrite it)


I will come back to this asap


Sure hope I could attend! Thanks for the live stream in advance :slight_smile: The last talks were awesome, so can’t wait for these!

Meteor Night is tomorrow!


Very excited! really looking forward to this, first was one awesome :clap::smiley:

I’m very excited to see how the workshops turn out, they could be really good for teaching the community how to apply some advanced Meteor techniques! I’m feeling pretty good about them :slight_smile:

The talks won’t start until 6:30PM, but here is the livestream link

But joining in person will be way more fun :slight_smile:


Cannot find recording on youtube. Is it there?

We still need to do some post-processing on the videos. Our AV guy was not very good this time, so it’ll be a bit of work…

Any news on video upload?

Hey guys! I was also looking for the videos. @veered do you guys need help with post-processing? I am definitely not a video expert but I have a lot of experience with audio and have done some video processing before so I don’t know how much help I would ACTUALLY be but I thought I would throw that out there :sweat_smile:

p.s. I see you guys streamed the talk to Twitch and I just wanted to throw it out there that most of my video experience does come from streaming to Twitch. Silly video games.

I am also would be interested in watching videos .
