First Portland Meteor Meetup Feat. PhoneGap Team

Yesterday I hosted the fisrt Meteor meetup in Portland. We had an incredibly interesting crowd already and then PhoneGap team joined us to make it even more awesome!


An amazing group of 20 showed up representing all the possible age, interest and experience groups. For the first time since I started giving talks about Meteor, half a year ago, I was not the only one to present an app written using Meteor – John Brown showed us his creation – WritinGoal.

I have had more fun programming with Meteor than I have in quite a while.
