Our goal with Discover Meteor has always been to make it the best resource to get started with the framework. But that leaves the question of what to do once you’re done with the book.

We didn’t really have a good answer (except maybe “go read it again”), so that’s why we just wrote up a new “Going Further” chapter that will come at the end of the book.

The chapter is pretty short for now, but it will at least help you get started exploring the rest of the Meteor ecosystem.

Meteor Links & Resources

Since some of you haven’t bought the book yet, we thought we’d also include these resources on the blog, in case anybody finds them useful. And by the way, don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you’d like to suggest another site!

Evented Mind

If you’d like to take a deeper dive into the intricacies of Meteor, we also strongly recommend checking out Chris Mather’s Evented Mind, a video learning platform with over 50 individual Meteor videos (and new videos being added every week).

MeteorHacks

One of the best ways to keep up with Meteor is to subscribe to Arunoda Susiripala’s MeteorHacks’ weekly newsletter. The MeteorHacks blog is also a great source for advanced Meteor tips.

Atmosphere

Atmosphere, Meteor’s unofficial package repository, is another great place to learn more: you can discover new packages and take a look at their code to see what patterns people are using.

Disclaimer: Atmosphere is maintained in part by Tom Coleman, one of the authors of this book.

Meteorpedia

Meteorpedia is a wiki for all things Meteor. And of course, it’s built with Meteor!

The Meteor Podcast

Josh and Ry from Meteor shop Differential record the Meteor Podcast every week, and it’s another great way to keep up with what’s going on in the Meteor community.

Other Resources

Stephan Hochhaus has compiled a pretty exhaustive list of Meteor resources.

Manuel Schoebel’s blog is another nice source of Meteor posts. And so is the Gentlenode blog.

Getting Help

If you run into a stumbling block, the best place to ask is Stack Overflow. Make sure you tag your question with the meteor tag.

Community

Finally, the best way to stay up to date with Meteor is to be active in the community. We recommend signing up for the Meteor mailing list, following the Meteor Core and Meteor Talk Google Groups, and creating an account on Meteor forum Crater.io.

The Vocabulary Sidebar

And by the way, since that new chapter will replace our Vocabulary chapter, we’ve moved it to a brand new sidebar that will always be available, making it much easier to look up a term as you read:

The new vocabulary sidebar.

Let us know what you think of the change!
