How did you like my post on books for learning Meteor.js? Not always a big fan of reading books? Are you more visually inclined? I understand. I am, too.
Luckily there are some great folks out there who will make our lives easier with regards to learning Meteor.js.
Online Programming Courses
Other online learning platforms such as Udemy are good, but when it comes to learning to code they lack in functionality. With that I mean that during an online coding/programming course I have found it essential to practice what I have learned with practical challenges.
Now, not all courses in the Meteor course list below offer these practical challenges, but many of them have been written and published by renowned Meteor professionals.

Some notes on the Meteor.js video tutorial list
The list is not complete. I was personally overwhelmed by all the resources. I took a look at the quality and reviews of the courses and created this shortlist. If your list is not on their, I most likely don’t know about it because I did not vet that much.
Why did I put David Turnbull’s course at the bottom? That is because I already bought his Meteor book and according to the author himself the video screencasts reflect the same content. So don’t let the position in the list influence your decisions much, the Meteor screencasts are worth it.
Meteor themselves maintain an active channel on Youtube but offer no real courses or full fledged Meteor tutorials.
Advanced Meteor courses are available, too. However, because of the advanced curriculum I did not add them to the list. Worthwhile courses include Pluralsight Meteor courses and Meteorhacks’ Bulletproof Meteor course. I have purchased the latter and will be working my way to completing the course soon.
