The course started a little bit slow for me, but I was familiar with Meteor already. After the first week I learned a lot and many things started to make sense to me. The quizzes are not too difficult if you pay enough attention to the lectures and I definitely recommend building the application alongside the instructor, so that when you are required to build the final assignment you don't have any trouble thinking on what to do next to meet the requirements with your app.

Outstanding class, and a very good introduction to using Meteor.js. Examples are through and help to teach how to use Meteor.js. Final project is a bit challenging, but there's enough provided up to that point that a little creative thinking can get it done.
