Toward the end of 2011, I kicked off the R& D phase for a new project called EtherPOS. EtherPOS is a cloud based retail point of sale system for multi-store organizations. At the time, one of my other companies, Atomic Tattoos, was struggling and burdened by the inefficiencies of three different retail point of sale systems. At my wits end, I decided it was time to create a retail point of sale system that acts and thinks like a retailer does. My decision involved selecting Meteor as the framework of choice!
