CoffeeScript

By Adi Baron

Abstract: JavaScript is a powerful language that combines Object-Oriented and Functional Programming. A new wave of languages that compile into JavaScript emphasize the power of this combination by suggesting better syntax. The first part of the talk will be an overview of OOP & FP with JavaScript and CoffeeScript, while in the second part we'll create a new language from scratch, writing our own grammar rules, lexer tokens, syntax tree, etc.

    Everything was "first class"!!
    too bad it started late and I had to go at the break.

    Interesting abstraction of javascript.
    Some of the examples were not real world but it was fun to see the simplicity of coffeescript.
    I don't like the fact that it's similar to YAML in that spaces and line breaks define the outcome of code.
    That said it seems like a fun language to try and build some projects with.
