A lot of the podcasts have been about engineering, and I’ve enjoyed them a lot. I would love to hear more about how its going in terms of growth and business. After seeing what happened to RethinkDB and many other start-ups, it would be great to have assurances that Meteor will be here for the long term.
With Meteor 1.5.1 and Meteor 1.6 well on their way it would be nice to have an overview of what is coming in those releases for those uninitiated.
Also at the beginning of the year there was a mention that there would be push to advertise Meteor more and for more community meetups. How is that going? It might be because I don’t live in the states anymore, but I haven’t seen much in this regard.
Now that we’re a huge step closer to SSR (technically already there) some discussion around the possibilities it opens up should be in order. I think this really has not sunk in with a lot of people (who still think SSR is hard on Meteor).
Also, I’ve conincidentally been having unrelated discussions with unrelated people about how nice Meteor is as a build tool for even a server-only (rest) api app, so I guess this, too, should be emphasized.
So this is a very interesting comment. This is actually what we’ve transitioned to. From standard Meteor web-apps we’ve now moved on to using Meteor as a tool to make (GraphQL) api that can communicate with a (meteor) web-app, a native mobile app and an Electron desktop app. All 3 variants have different client-ui/x but share the same api.
It would be very interesting to see what others have to say on this pattern and if it is the way Meteor is headed.
Another awesome Transmission @pauldowman@sashko - and great job @abernix! Hey, let’s add a new regular segment to the show, “Jesse’s Jammin’ Meteor Moment” (naming could change ), to give a quick overview of what’s new with Meteor since the last show, and what’s coming. There’s quite a bit of Meteor progress made in-between shows - it would be great to hear about that progress on a regular basis! Regardless, thanks for putting these shows together guys!
