We are thrilled to welcome Arunoda Susiripala to our first annual Meteor Camp happening here in NYC at the UN on July 8-10! It’s only a month away but please come join us as we host a technical open-source gathering for the Meteor community, by the Meteor community.
Meteor Camp is a not-for-profit, all-volunteer event and will feature Arunoda for keynote and panels along with presentations by Josh Owens, Abigail Watson, Robert Dickert and other members of the Meteor community. Their presentations will cover topics ranging from building HIPAA compliant applications to component design when using React to mobile application development to mission-based software development – all in the Meteor ecosystem.
