Building a good product is not something you can do in one day, to be clear about that.

There are a lot of ways to develop a product out there, but the best news is that there is a new type of web development frameworks that really changes the way web development works. One of the most prominent frameworks is MeteorJS.

What do you know about Meteor?

I don’t want to tell you about metallic body travelling outer space.  “Meteor, or MeteorJS, is a free and open-source JavaScript web framework  written using Node.js”, tells Wikipedia

Node.js makes it possible that you can use JavaScript as the server-side language and this is really awesome.

There’s a lot to love about the Meteor JavaScript framework. With nothing but JavaScript, you’re able to build modern, real-time web applications for both desktop and mobile platforms. The greatest advantage here is the common back-end not only for both web and mobile but also for all the mobile platforms. Shorter and cleaner code – less development time – a happy client.

Beginning developers can quickly build something impressive and useful; while more advanced developers can appreciate Meteor’s flexibility. Combined with some awesome front-end framework like Bootstrap e.g., it may eliminate the need to use CSS, AJAX and even MVC, which frees quite some time. And what else is going to get wiped out by Meteor in the future? We shall see.

Also there’s an active community that organizes meet-ups, publishes free training material, and offers help wherever possible. Meteor is a great instrument both for development jedi knights and young padawans, so the community feels like it’s worth it to spend time and effort on supporting the technology. More and more useful stuff on Meteor appears.

There are only a few things you’ll need with Meteor before getting inflamed with enthusiasm. First, you’ll need a computer with a major operating system. This could be Mac OS X, Windows, or Linux. All major operating systems are equally supported. Second, you’ll need a text editor. Third, you’ll need a relatively modern web browser.
As a conclusion: Meteor is a powerful, rich and yet simple instrument for all kinds of developers. Meteor’s community may not be the biggest and the greatest, but it has an amazing set of people from all over the world. Meteor will not be the next PHP or RoR but it will become something bigger and the first of its kind; so just wait for the Meteor shower to become Meteor snow.
