"CoffeeScript is a little language that compiles into JavaScript. Underneath all of those embarrassing braces and semicolons, JavaScript has always had a gorgeous object model at its heart. CoffeeScript is an attempt to expose the good parts of JavaScript in a simple way." -- Jeremy Ashkenas (author of CoffeeScript)

During a recent greenfield project, I found myself riddled with a burden. Even though I had written JavaScript for years, this time, the JavaScript syntax itself was getting in the way. CoffeeScript's elegant syntax relieved that burden. I quickly fell so in love with CoffeeScript that I have since sworn off writing raw JavaScript directly ever again. The goal of this talk is to convince the audience to try CoffeeScript in hopes that they too will find it as valuable as I did.
