I have been enjoying Arunoda Susiripala's fantastic Meteor APM for monitoring performance of Meteor applications. It is very handy for finding issues in your applications and infrastructure.
While I run the Meteor apps locally for devleopment, I find it nice to have APM initialize on just my test servers so I know the source of data APM is anaylizing and displaying. It dawned on me that it would be pretty simple to limit the instace where APM initializes. To do this, I wrapped Apm.connect in a conditional statement which checks the root URL of the application. Next, I make sure to set the ROOT_URL environment variable before launching Meteor to run the application.
I had the pleasure of presenting an intro to Meteor at last night's TriangleJS meetup. It was a super fun night with lots of folks showing up and asking great questions. TriangleJS is a great group and I highly recommend attending one of their meetups if you are in the Triangle NC area.
I have been working on a few Meteor presentations as a part of the Meteor community in Charlotte. I wanted my presentations to have a Meteor feel, so I used the look and feel of meteor.com to setup a theme for Keynote. Thanks to meteor.com's very cool background, curved cornered white rectangles, and liberal use of Helvetica Neue, I think it works out quite well.
