Great post! I am following the same path as you. I tryed RoR but I couldn’t get it. I’ve allway wanted create my own apps but for me the other languages were confusing(even for me that works as a SysAdmin). I had never understood why I should learn two languages to build a web app. So heard about Meteor and I took some Coursera Courses and everything seem clear.
Thank you for providing a clear path to learn more about Meteor!
