CoffeeScript - 7 Reasons You Are Totally Gonna Hate It

21 Jul 2010

From the CoffeeScript homepage:

CoffeeScript is a little language that compiles into JavaScript. Think of it as JavaScript’s less ostentatious kid brother – the same genes, roughly the same height, but a different sense of style.

This 7 reasons presentation is wrapped in a nasty flash-document viewer, but shows off some nice examples of the syntax and the getting started process.
