      Great presentation sir. Had to jet but looking forward to chatting next time. Lots to think about. Loved what you said about getting the stack together and picking the right tools. Good stuff.

      Just wanted to say I liked your comedy mixed in with concern for our jobs. Great conversation and presentation to whet our ES6 palates. Good job. Looking forward to hanging out with you and picking your brain next time.

    Both presenters were great. Though I'm not such a coffeeScript guy, I learned about a few tools I'll learn in the future. I appreciated the meta approach and it seemed too short. Could have filled the whole time.

    ECMAscript 6 is especially interesting to me. I came from an ActionScript 3 background and when I first started learning modern JavaScript frameworks, I couldn't believe all the gee gaws and convoluted side effects you poor guys had to game in order to mimic classic OOP. I can't wait for classes, namespaces, constants, instances and protected, private and public variables and functions. This is a higher level way of looking at OOP without having to resort to closures, immediately executed functions or the messy and nasty prototype chain. Of course it won't be supported until IE 14 or so. A good overview and again, that could have filled the entire time.
