One more student demonstration is taking place in the NEXIS student-based research lab this semester.

On Friday, April 10, Max Matthews will be explaining the web and app-building program, Meteor JS. The demonstration begins at 1:30 p.m. It will be held at the ICE Box, on the second floor of Hinds Hall at the School of Information Studies (iSchool).

“Matthews is a resident NEXIS hacker, defining himself as a full stack developer,” explained NEXIS-X lab director Braeden Croy. “After hours of trial and error, learning new languages, and getting frustrated having to scrap entire projects, Max stumbled upon Meteor and never looked back.

For students looking to build the next Facebook or simply learn the best development platform out there, you will NOT want to miss this NEXIS-X,” Croy said. According to the platform web site, “Meteor is a complete open source platform for building web and mobile apps in pure JavaScript.”

NEXIS (New Explorations in Information and Science) is a student based, membership-driven research lab located in the iSchool. Its goal is to provide inspired students with a supportive interdisciplinary community and a set of resources which encourages their expression of creativity through project based learning and peer-to-peer collaboration.
