None of us knew it well, most of us not at all (like me). We're all experienced software engineers. So why would a book aimed at newbies be so good?
In short, it's short.
Of course I have many questions and am far from an expert, but I now know the essence.
Are you an experienced developer? Pay the 99 cents.
Are you a first time developer -- Meteor is a great choice. And so is this book. Pay the 99 cents.
Overall, I recommend this book to anyone using Meteor for the first time. It is really a short read and very well worth the $5. All college students should consider reading this book.
This author obviously cares about your learning experience and understands your inexperience with Meteor.
Most other books assume, strangely, that you are an advanced coder that are still reading a beginner's tutorial. This book assumes just what you are and doesn't talk down to you either.
Thinking that a big part of this book's beginner-friendly charm is just that Meteor is a great framework, I waited to review this book. Now that I've read the rest of the material out there on Meteor I can say that, no, it's not Meteor that deserves praise, it's the author. Meteor is great and somewhat beginner friendly, but most authors and teachers still manage to confuse regularly.
Because I love this book so much, I bought it despite first reading it for free.
Great book. I didn't give it Five stars because I wanted to see a bit more on how to set it up in an ide not just a command line and also I wanted to see how to do package management better. But maybe that's for a more advanced book. Brilliant work overall. This guy really cares about teaching and reaching where u are.
This stands-out by far. The instructions are so clear and the code blocks are divided and presented in a way that makes following along very easy. I have the impression the author put a lot of thought into this, in particular. Most other books give you a bigger code block and then spend a paragraph explaining the lines. This one is more like a (good) conversation, where you type a few lines, test it out, type some others, a so on. Also it tries to explain as much as possible regarding certain words and conventions. As a beginner I value this a lot because I never know for sure where certain things come from (especially methods, functions). "Is it from external package, is it a convention, is it from the core module? Should I've known this word?"
ps: Meteor is awesome and this book will really help you get started.
