There are a lot of questions and you can spend a lot of time researching... and the things you learn will likely be useful at some point in time. But we're not here to be the best read developer - we're here to build products. And that's where Meteor comes into play. It handles all of these questions for us - coming with MongoDB for the database, live-reloading upon file change, code minification, and we can get real-time data for free if we want it. All of that with a single command.
This is the programming stack I've been using for over a year and a half. It's allowed me to quickly start new projects, iterate on them, and ship high quality apps in less time, in one language, and with less bugs.
I want to help you have the same experiences with React Native and Meteor that I have.
Hey! I'm Spencer. I'm a developer, cat dad, and devout pizza lover living in Nashville, Tennessee. I've been working with Meteor since mid-2013, React Native since early 2015, and have shared dozens of tutorials on how to use the technologies.
I've always been a fan of teaching - doing so longer than I've been able to drive. If you're into outdoor survival you may be able to find some old instructional videos on YouTube - though I won't tell you how to find them 😁
It was important to me to not create another example-only tutorial. I wanted to create a real app with you and face the real challenges you'll face when developing your apps. That's why we're using a real data set of over 17,500 documents. Learn how to:
Efficiently transfer data between client and server
Use real-time data and choose whether or not you need it
Use geolocation in React Native
Use geospatial queries in MongoDB
Write data to the Meteor server
Use Meteor Accounts
Organize your project
In this course you'll build an app that finds the nearest electric vehicle charging stations to your current location. The app runs on both iOS and Android and communicates with the Meteor server via DDP. The app has real-time components, accounts, and more. Check out the video overview below for more information!
Anyone who has checked out React Native or Meteor! That might be a little too broad... This course isn't for someone wanting to try out either of these technologies for the very first time - the free tutorials on the respective sites can cover that. Rather, this course is for
Regardless of who you are or what your goals are I want you to be happy with your purchase. If you don't find the course valuable I'll refund you 100%.
It seems like every tutorial you come across is another todo list. Not this one. We're building an app with a real-world 17,500 document dataset and will face pains you'll likely come across in production.
