We are happy to announce the release of the new angular 1.2.0 package, which takes advantage of the new build process introduced in Meteor 1.2 to make Angular developers feel even more comfortable and productive.
Recently I went through the challenge and ordeal of having to scale my Meteor app. It’s a project that had already been running in production for about a year. This summer the app became a lot more popular with over 12,000 signups in the course of a month (peaking at 1,000 signups in a single day). My initial setup could no longer handle the load and I was faced with a scaling problem that had to be solved quickly.
