Thanks for the feedback about the beginning of the demo. We had a really tough time with the site and the video because the people who are interested in frameworks like Meteor come from a lot of different backgrounds. Some people have written half a dozen Backbone applications and have written their own highly scalable node.js cache invalidation servers, while other people have suggested that we take the word "REST" off the homepage because it's confusing to new developers.

It's tough to find a pace that holds the attention of the experienced people while not losing the people that are new to web development.

Don't shy away from opportunity to teach. Just make sure you show it as a link, perhaps that means a simple popover explaining in simple terms what REST means.


Amazing stuff! Would 'add pyjamas' (pyjs.org) be possible in future for those of us who prefer to generate their Javascript from Python?
