The Meteor Guide. Unfortunately not as famous as the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, this is an essential tool in your toolset to make your way through the wilderness of the Meteor ecosystem.
It has been developed in the open, and it’s opinionated yet but built with the community. It covers almost everything you have to know, and you can use it as a reference whenever you need to recall something.
I highly recommend reading it once. If you are not convinced that you need it, just take 20 minutes to watch this video from Meteor DevShop at San Fransisco where they explain its point more in details:
Note: MDG is inviting you to contribute to the guide, so if you think you can add a relevant touch to it, don’t panic and contribute to it!
In addition to the Meteor Guide, you may also check some others resources like:
- The Meteor Chef blog with snippets and tutorials to solve particular problems you may have
- The Space Dojo to learn deeper concepts about Meteor with a community
- Transmission to be aware of the path that Meteor is taking
