Stars Fell On Alabama, or my shift to MeteorJS
It’s been quiet around these parts lately; I apologize. I’ve been shifting away from Ember and Angular for a while now and I don’t regret it one bit. Why? Well let me tell you about the most fun I’ve had learning and developing recently.
Angular is great for front-end developers like myself, but I didn’t appreciate the sudden move to a complete different syntax that is confusing (yet more intuitive). Ember seemed very nice in theory, but no matter what I tried I could not wrap my head around all of it.
A Short History Lesson On Me
Back in 2013, I was starting a new job and looking for a good solution for the newly formed team. Meteor flew past me in a whirlwind of new technologies so I researched a bit into it, but ultimately moved on to something that was more familiar to another co-worker. We settled on Grails/Groovy to build enterprise level healthcare applications, but I did not forget about Meteor. Fast forward to February 2015 and I rediscovered Meteor via the Discover Meteor book (see what I did there?). After just a few days with Meteor, I was hooked.
Not a framework, but instead a full solution
So what’s next? I’ve decided to start writing solely about Meteor. Why do I feel people might actually read my words? Because I’m beginning down a road that many other developers are traveling also. I will hit all the small potholes and big roundabouts in the process and write about it. So expect to see short posts, long posts, links, videos, and anything else I find interesting about this new world.
Also I changed the blog name, not that anyone really cares.
Let’s do this!
