Released in April, Meteor is a set of new technologies for building top-quality web apps in a fraction of the time, whether you’re an expert developer or just getting started.

Before founding Meteor, Matt DeBergalis authored ActBlue, the world’s largest political fundraising platform, raising a quarter of a billion dollars. Before that, Matt was a kernel hacker: some of his technical credits include the NeXT port of NetBSD and work on the NFSv4 and DAFS specifications while at Network Appliance. As an undergraduate at MIT, Matt built a phone system for his fraternity, fabricating the circuit boards and writing the operating system from scratch.
