Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I had a blast when I started playing with CoffeeScript. Everything I'd been trying to do with JavaScript was suddenly so much simpler, the code so much cleaner. Within a week, I was able to do anything I could do in JavaScript in less time and with fewer bugs.

Apparently I wasn't the only one who found CoffeeScript to be a joy. The Ruby world was so enamored with it that they decided to make CoffeeScript a full-fledged part of Rails 3.1. The Mozilla team is working on adding CoffeeScript support to Firefox. Suddenly everyone's talking about this language touted by its creator as "JavaScript's less ostentatious little brother." As David Heinemeier Hansson put it: "Go, go, coffee!"

With this book, I hope to share the joy I felt when first exploring CoffeeScript, while helping readers to avoid many of the pitfalls--and to better understand the underlying JavaScript runtime. JavaScript may well be the most important language in the world, blessed with the unique privilege of running in all major web browsers (and, thanks to Node.js, in a first-class server environment). CoffeeScript provides all the power of JavaScript, with an elegant syntax.

CoffeeScript: Accelerated JavaScript Development is now in print. It can also be purchased as a Kindle- and iPad-friendly eBook directly from PragProg, where you'll also find code from the book and a discussion forum.
