[50 minutes] I discovered CoffeeScript during a recent project that Jim Garvin and I were working on. We knew the app was going to be heavy on the JavaScript, and that’s how we started – writing straight JavaScript. Even though I have written JavaScript for years, this time, the JavaScript syntax itself got in the way. CoffeeScript’s elegant syntax relieved the 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.
