CoffeeScript for Server Side Devs

A session at All Things Open

Thursday 24th October, 2013

1:30pm to 2:15pm (EST)

Coming from Object Oriented languages like Ruby, Python, or Java, Javascript is both strangely interesting and largely intimidating. This prevents many server side oriented folks from attempting to become experts in this domain. And yet, the profusion of MVC style frameworks for writing 'smart clients' has opened up a huge opportunity for strong server side experience to play a role in modern front end development. This talk is a survey of some of the features in CoffeeScript that make the transition into the front end more
Enjoyable for developers with deeper experience in more traditional languages. We'll take a look at some of these features and real life applications of how to use them.
