If you've written node or javascript for a while, its pretty likely at some point you've stumbled across a module written in CoffeeScript or some other transcompiling language.

In this meetup I'll go over the ins-and-outs of using CoffeeScript for your node and javascript projects. I'll cover the advantages and potential pitfalls to using a transcompiling language and show working samples that demonstrate them at work.

Topics will include a mix of both beginner and advanced topics:
- overview of CoffeeScript
- getting bootstrapped
- debugging and compile settings
- bonus language features
