I will be talking with MDG team members about whatever the most interesting topics have been for the last month or so, and I’d like to get your help with that.
Reply here and let us know which recent topics are the most important to you!
On Episode #15 we talked about community involvement (as usual), Meteor 1.4.2, GraphQL subscriptions, and the grapher package.
TRANSMISSION is a monthly show covering the most important topics to come out of the Meteor Forums. Each month we need your help to pick the most relevant forum posts for us to discuss with MDG in deeper detail.
The impact of the loss of Arunoda/Kadira as creators/maintainers on some of the most used Meteor packages. Will those packages be removed from the guide? Any discussions with Arunoda?
As MDG transistions to a role of fostering a community developed platform where does the line of that get drawn? E.g. as Blaze gets decoupled it really is no more significant to core than Flow-router, Collection2, and other packages that are very commonly used. Should the resources spent fostering the community be put only towards what is or was in core or should it be focused on what has the most impact on the community?
@sashko made a comment in one the posts that a number of thought leaders in Meteor have moved on. My take is that many were service providers who were needed when Meteor was still not as stable, and / or who moved on to ‘shiny’ frameworks. Now that Meteor is stable, I am noticing quite a few companies actually using it, but they are not that active in the community (i.e. forum) - they come in every once in a while to read about updates but that’s it. I can sense why, they are not necessarily looking to sell their services, they have a product that makes money (we fall into that category) and are perfectly happy about Meteor the way it is.
This is a major change in Meteor’s community composition. There is a larger “silent majority” now. I think it is an important topic to address as the community in this forum is still judging meteor by the previous composition of the community, which has evolved quite a bit.
