Surfs Up! Build a Mobile Meteor App in 15 Minutes!

Growing up in NY and then transplanting to the Florida Gulf Coast I pretty much suck at surfing, though I do enjoy trying, especially during hurricane season.  In fact, I don't even have a board anymore but I do have plans to build a wooden longboard later this year (a future post maybe)!  The problem with living on the Florida Gulf Coast is that there are very few good surf days.  Sometimes it is just fun to go romp around with a boogie board, but the problem is it is usually flat around here.  You just never know when there are good surf conditions!

Tampa Bay Meteor Meetup's Thursday Dec 4th meeting had a speaker scheduled to talk about Meteor and Mobile Development.  Unfortunately, the speaker got sick and I was left without a speaker but with a talk scheduled about Meteor and Mobile Development.

So, in anticipation I took it upon myself to kill two birds with one stone.  I needed a presentation on Meteor Mobile Development for the Tampa Bay Meteor Meetup and in anticipation of completing my wooden longboard next year I needed a mobile app with marine weather and surf conditions.

So, I built Surfs Up, a Meteor mobile marine weather app and I made a presentation showing you how to build it yourself in 15 minutes or less or your app is free!
