Présentation de l'éditeur
CoffeeScript Application Development will give you an in-depth look at the CoffeeScript language, all while building a working web application. Along the way, you'll see all the great features CoffeeScript has to offer, and learn how to use them to deal with real problems like sprawling codebases, incomplete data, and asynchronous web requests.
Through the course of this book you will learn the CoffeeScript syntax and see it demonstrated with simple examples. As you go, you'll put your new skills into practice by building a web application, piece by piece. You'll start with standard language features such as loops, functions, and string manipulation. Then, we’ll delve into advanced features like classes and inheritance. Learn advanced idioms to deal with common occurrences like external web requests, and hone your technique for development tasks like debugging and refactoring.
CoffeeScript Application Development will teach you not only how to write CoffeeScript, but also how to build solid applications that run smoothly and are a pleasure to maintain.
CoffeeScript Application Development is a practical, hands-on guide with step-by-step instructions. Follow the smooth and easy tutorial approach, covering examples that build in complexity. By the final chapter you'll be wondering why you didn't try CoffeeScript sooner.

Biographie de l'auteur
Ian Young wrote his very first program on a TI-89 scientific calculator an infinite loop that printed an insulting message to one of his friends. As one might expect, things could only improve from there. Ian graduated from Grinnell College with a degree in Computer Science, and since then he has been working as a web developer for small tech companies, first in Minneapolis and now in San Diego. He loves web technology, small teams, frequent iteration, testing, beautiful ideas, free speech, free beer, and any tool that reduces cognitive overhead.
