@anitashah welcome to meteor!
If you want to be at the bleeding edge of technologies, I’d recommend you to take a look at VulcanJS. It uses Meteor as it’s base, and extends it with some really useful tools, and provides graphql as a first class citizen.
For example, right from the start, you have routing, a full accounts system, and even things like pagination ready to use, which sound like something basic (and should be!) but it’s actually difficult to build from scratch and takes a long time, which you can spend building awesome stuff
I also recommend vulcan because I find it much more approachable from a newbie standpoint. It’s youtube channel has some video tutorials about how to build with vulcan & meteor, and a video about “Vulcanstagram”, the vulcanjs clone of instagram.
And remember: Its core is all meteor! It only provides you some defaults and helpers to help you get started with the heavy topics.
Hope you enjoy your time with meteor, and please let us know if you build something cool with it!
