What we're about

What is CoffeeScript?

CoffeeScript (http://coffeescript.org/) is a little language that compiles into JavaScript. Underneath that awkward Java-esque patina, JavaScript has always had a gorgeous heart. CoffeeScript is an attempt to expose the good parts of JavaScript in a simple way.

For a quick introduction to CoffeeScript check out Panda Strike's Introduction to CoffeeScript (http://www.pandastrike.com/pages/intro-to-coffeescript)

Who We Are

We're a group of professionals so in love with CoffeeScript we've developed our own tutorials. We're starting this meetup to show others why we enjoy developing in CoffeeScript and to interact with others who are also using CoffeeScript.

What To Expect

Some programming experience is assumed. For people who are new to CoffeeScript we'll provide self-paced tutorials. For people who are further advanced we'll have projects to work on and talk about, people to argue (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQFKtI6gn9Y) with.
