Los Angeles CoffeeScript


Mucker Lab provides the infrastructure

Panda Strike provides the food and beer



Some programming and JavaScript experience is assumed.

Bring your own laptop.

Beginner Track

We won't have a beginner track this time.

Advanced Track

We'd like to foster an environment for discussion and collaboration. To facilitate this we encourage people to bring projects/ideas to show off and discuss.

Dan Yoder will talk about how developing in CoffeeScript offers unique advantages compared to JavaScript that go beyond mere syntactic sugar. He'll use the development of the Nice component-oriented HCI framework as an example.

Afterwards, we'll also go around the room and have you show off your projects/ideas for discussion.


We usually eat, drink and mingle until around 6:30 when we officially get started with introductions



We have limited space. You're required to RSVP.

Leave a comment about what you're working on, any CoffeeScript projects you may be bringing with you, etc. so others can see what you're up to.


In the parking lot we're only allowed to park in spots clearly labeled "Visitor" or "MuckerLab"

Street/metered parking is available

ParkMe has more parking information.



We have an IRC channel. "It's how hackers talk when they don't want to be overheard"

IRC: #coffeescriptla on Freenode

    I took a look at JAML and it _is_ pretty clean. The one question I have is how it looks when you have basic control flow in the mix? The examples don't show that.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
