HashBang (/hăsh•băng/) Weekly by OK GROW!

Here's your weekly dose of Meteor/GraphQL/React news. Written by Karl Danninger with help from the rest of the team.
Meteor
Meteor Development Group has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Kadira APM product. MDG is working closely with Arunoda and a number of Kadira customers. If you’d like to get early access to our efforts, please let them know. In the coming weeks, we’ll open things up to everyone and organize a transition off the old Kadira system.
If you have data locality requirements or want more responsive performance for users in Asia, you can now enjoy zero-devops deployments that run in Galaxy’s AWS ap-southeast2 (Sydney) region.
Meteor was first released back in 2011, and since then it’s been one of the most powerful platforms for web developers. It brought many new concepts to the table — one of the more powerful ones is where the client, server and the database can share code, almost the same API and code snippets, which really accelerated the development process.
React
If you care about performance, it’s fairly easy to make any React application super fast.
There is a new React Training program that is about to start next month (which is in a couple of days), If you are interested in self learning and going at your own pace, this course may be for you.
