Worldwide Meteor Day – Cape Town

Come join Meteor Cape Town for Worldwide Meteor Day (meteorday.com)! The whole Meteor community is holding simultaneous meetups around the world on Nov 6, open to anyone who is interested in learning more about the Meteor platform. You’ll get to meet developers who have built things with Meteor here in Cape Town, play with the new Meteor examples and tutorial, and have Q&A via Hangout with a core developer or expert from the community. We’ll have free Meteor t-shirts and stickers in the new design as well. Be sure to bring your laptops for the deploy fest and open coworking.

If you’ve built a Meteor app before, we would love to see it during the show & tell part of the meetup. This could be any project large or small, whether that’s a complex production app or just something you threw together in a weekend. Drop us a line in the comments if you have a Meteor app you could show.
