How much money do you think has been spent building Tinder?
How much time do you think it has taken Tinder to built their app?
How many lines of code do you think were in version 1, let alone in the version that’s live today?
I am sure by now the bill is into the millions however what is scary is that a clone can be created with 150 lines of code when you use the Meteor framework.
Yes you are reading that right 150 line not 15,000 or 150,000 just 150!
But if you are saying great but what does this mean for me?
We are finding that on most projects One MeteorNerd can handle the tasks of 3 developers in comparison to when we used other platforms. We are not losing time on projects and actually gaining time. Meteor is allowing us to create truly intelligent and interactive apps like never before.
Let me put this into context for you:
There is nothing worse than having to throw away your MVP code base because you are moving to a better or the real platform. What a waste of time, energy and momentum. What is most important in your startup is momentum.
