But, being "an old-timer" I can't help but think how terrible inefficient this is.
First, the ENTIRE application must be downloaded to the client on the initial request. Am I wrong about that?
And, of course, you do not want ALL the [for lack of a better term] "back-end" data on the client (security is one very BIG reason that comes to mind) so there is no real savings; you are not eliminating trips to the server. Are they minimized by such a great extent it makes a difference?

I added a datePicker using jQuery at the bottom of the page. If I use one it works but when I use two only the one which is at the first place in the form shows a pop up for pick a date, the other one just doesnt show it.
Does Meteor make it simple to keep track of the difference between client side validation and server side validation? My first fear would be that I write some validation code, and it turns out to only run on the client and someone can bypass my entire security layer by sending a bad request using raw socket programming or web browser developer tools.

Now first and foremost, I realize that having a scaling problem is the right kind of problem. If I write a Meteor app for work or on my own and I'm having trouble now that I have 10GB of user data, then I probably have a business model and I can cross that bridge when I get to it. But I'm just wondering if you've run into any issues like that, and if not then I'm just curious what size data sets you've successfully used with Mongo.

I see it's gotten a ton of hype over the past two years, but I'd like to hear from you - or anyone else that cares to chime in - how it has simplified client code.
