Introduction to Meteor.js Development (Coursera)

In this course, you will learn how to create a complete, multi-user web site using the Meteor.js framework and MongoDB. You will implement user authentication, security features, reactive templates and routing using iron router. You will carry out key database operations such as inserting, removing and updating data as well as sorting and filtering. You will see how a complete application can be built, line by line.

At the end of the course, you will be able to:

1. Install the Meteor.js system then create and deploy web applications

2. Work with the Meteor.js packaging system

3. Write Meteor.js templates that can reactively display data

4. Use insert, remove and update operations on MongoDB

5. Write MongoDB data filters to search for and sort data

6 .Add user authentication functionality to a website

7. Control what is displayed on the page using iron:router

8. Implement basic security features

In this course, you will complete:

1 server install assignment taking ~1 hour to complete

1 programming assignment taking ~8 hours to complete

4 quizzes, each taking ~20 minutes to complete

multiple practice quizzes, each taking ~5 minutes to complete

Prerequisites This course is designed to build on top of the material delivered in the previous two courses in this specialisation. Therefore, we recommend that if you find this course too technically challenging that you first complete the previous courses before re-commencing this one. Specifically, we expect you to be able to code basic HTML, CSS and Javascript before you take this course.

Participation in or completion of this online course will not confer academic credit for University of London programs.


Introduction to Meteor.js Development is course 3 of 6 in the Responsive Website Development and Design Specialization.


This Specialization covers the basics of modern full stack web development, from UX design, to front-end coding, to custom databases. You’ll build foundational skills in a full range of technologies, including HTML/CSS, Javascript, and MongoDB, and you’ll learn to implement a reactive, multi-user web application using the meteor.js framework. We’ll also touch on more advanced topics, such as APIs, data visualization, and animation. Upon completing the Specialization and Capstone Project, you’ll have designed and launched your own fully-functioning, responsive web application.
