Well this isn’t really a Meteor.JS issue or that Meteor is at fault. But there is an known issue with HTML5 web sockets, proxy servers and firewalls.
From How HTML5 Web Sockets Interact With Proxy Servers
Unencrypted WebSocket Connections and Transparent Proxy Servers
In case the unencrypted WebSocket traffic flows through a transparent proxy on its way to the WebSocket server, the connection is likely to fail in practice, since the browser does not issue the CONNECT method in this case. When a proxy server forwards a request to the (WebSocket) server, it is expected to strip off certain headers, including the Connection header. Therefore, a well-behaved transparent proxy server will cause the WebSocket upgrade handshake to fail almost immediately.
So this Thursday I attend the 2014 PayPal Battlehack it’s a great hackathon with over 10 cities around the world. This is my second year attending and like last year the event was just great and amazing.
I didn’t win but one of the cool things that I got was a Leap Motion, I wanted to put together a quick list of links and resources about the Leap Motion if your just now getting started with it or happen to get one at the Battlehack. Also stay tuned will do Battlehack wrap up post and show off our app.
Finally getting around to wrapping up my Geekcon 2013 project and experience. First I have to say Geekcon this year was amazing, it’s only my second year attending but this year it was really good and I had a great time.
If your asking yourself what Geekcon is?
Well in short Geekcon is an annual geek weekend gathering of creating projects. Check the about page for more details and the story behind it.
Go Viral with Guerrilla Marketing Campaigns for Startups
A month ago we created the Scoreoid Asset Promotion and within 24 hours we had over 5,000 tweets over 1 million Twitter Impressions, over 6,000 social referrals, trending on Reddit and so forth. All this at a cost of $230 a perfect budget for a startup.
My talk will cover what we have learned from the Scoreoid Community Asset Promotion, best practices, how to use social media, things to think about when it comes to creative guerrilla marketing for startups and finally how to go out and get users.
But one thing I don’t like is the standard look, when looking for other options like themes I found some great resources.
I thought I would share what I found
Back in July I attended the PayPal Battlehack Tel Aviv hackathon. It was an amazing event. I was a bit sceptical about PayPal doing a hackathon but I have to say PayPal really new what they were doing and it was an amazing event not to mention lot’s of great prizes.
I heard about Meteor.JS sometime ago, back when it first came out. At the time I really didn’t understand much about it but I did like the idea behind it. Especially using the same code on the client and server.
new year resolution, wait my blog resolution.
I tried to get back to blogging sometime ago but it didn’t work giving it another go and here is my blog resolution and how I plan on doing it and yes I kept it short and simple:
