A Decaf Introduction to Coffee Script

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Come and learn about CoffeeScript, a little language that compiles into JavaScript while allowing you to write better, cleaner, and more importantly, less client code to power your web sites. There is no doubt that JavaScript is king on the web and that frameworks (like jQuery and YUI) have taken the language to new levels. But how about language that takes JavaScript’s good parts, cleans up the syntax a little bit, adds lexical scope to variables (which prevents accidental pollution of the global namespace), makes function binding easier, and seamlessly integrates with existing JavaScript libraries? Meet CoffeeScript, an open source language that has been around for 2+ years and provides these features. This session is an introduction to CoffeeScript, the main features of the language, how is different from JavaScript, why is important to web developers, and how you can integrate it in your web site today. Experience Level: Beginner - Assumes no prior knowledge of topic. Prerequisite Knowledge:
Web development and JavaScript. Skills/Knowledge Gained: Why is CoffeScript relevant today, main features of the language, and how to get started.
