Publisher Comments:

CoffeeScript is JavaScript done right. In the first book on this exciting new language, CoffeeScript guru Trevor Burnham shows you how to hold onto all the power and flexibility of JavaScript while writing clearer, cleaner, and safer code.

You'll start with the basics of CoffeeScript, as Trevor gets you quickly - and entertainingly - up to speed on functions, collections, and classes. You'll learn how CoffeeScript cleans up JavaScript syntax yet maintains full compatibility with all your existing JavaScript code. And you'll dive deep, writing a full multiplayer online game in CoffeeScript, step by step, adding features to the game as you learn new features of CoffeeScript. You'll test your newfound skills with exercises in every chapter that help you extend your CoffeeScript knowledge

Trevor takes you beyond the language to show you how to integrate CoffeeScript into the whole JavaScript development environment. You'll discover how to exploit all the power of the JQuery library in CoffeeScript. And you'll take your CoffeeScript apps server-side with Node.js.

CoffeeScript civilizes JavaScript, letting you write clean, readable, powerful JavaScript code. This book lets you start doing it today.

You'll need CoffeeScript 1.0 and Node.js.

Synopsis:

CoffeeScript is JavaScript done right. It provides all of JavaScript's functionality wrapped in a cleaner, more succinct syntax. In the first book on this exciting new language, CoffeeScript guru Trevor Burnham shows you how to hold onto all the power and flexibility of JavaScript while writing clearer, cleaner, and safer code.

CoffeeScript: Accelerated JavaScript Development offers a thorough introduction to this new language, starting from the basics. You'll learn to use time-saving features like list comprehensions and splats, organize your code into modules with extensible classes, and deploy your work to multiple environments.

Each chapter is example-driven and includes challenging exercises to push your CoffeeScript know-how further. Through the course of the book, you'll build a fast-paced multiplayer word game-writing both the client (with jQuery) and server (with Node.js) in CoffeeScript. And because the two languages are so deeply intertwined, you'll deepen your understanding of JavaScript along the way.

CoffeeScript makes it easier than ever to write powerful, standards-compliant JavaScript code. CoffeeScript: Accelerated JavaScript Development lets you start doing it today.
