CoffeeScript Basics - A Teach Me To Code Tutorial

CoffeeScript is now going to be a default installation with Ruby on Rails. So, I installed CoffeeScript and NodeJS and have been playing with it for the last hour or so. Here are the basics you need to know to use CoffeeScript including functions, arrays, hashes (objects), control functions (if, else, unless) and loops.

That being said, it is something I'm likely to use in the future.[Download](https://traffic.libsyn.com/tmtc/coffeescriptbasics.m4v) 168 MB[Download (iPhone & iPod)](https://traffic.libsyn.com/tmtc/coffeescriptbasicsiPhone.m4v) 87.3 MB
