CoffeeScript.  That's the little language that compiles into JavaScript.

Underneath all those awkward 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.

Tom Holder and his crew are going to show you how to make good CoffeeScript, great CoffeeScript.

Adam won't be talking about weiners, instead he'll be showing us his dev tip on localtunnel.

Swiftly followed with a lightning talk on HAXE from James Jackson of Realtime Cloud.  IF YOU COULD ONLY LEARN ONE PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE, HAXE WOULD BE IT.IT'S UNIVERSAL. IT'S POWERFUL. IT'S EASY-TO-USE.

Got a dev tip you want to share?  Let us know.

Got a lovely piece of JS you're proud of? Let us know.

    I think that'd make a great lightning talk 5~20 mins to round of the night?
