While catching up on my reading backlog, I particularly enjoyed reading two new books I bought recently which I’m going to briefly discuss in this blog post.
The book contains six chapters. The first four chapters basically cover the different language features of CoffeeScript. The last two chapters explain how to use CoffeeScript both on the client-side along with jQuery and the server-side with Node.js. At the end of each chapter there’s an example application (5x5 solitaire) that gets refactored throughout the book as more language features are covered. Every chapter also provides some exercises where you can put your teeth into.
I highly recommend this book if you want to learn this great little programming language.
After the obligatory introductory chapter, chapter 2 up to chapter 6 discuss each part of the MVC pattern and events. The author thoroughly explains each part of this design pattern while implementing his own client-side MVC library. Lots and lots of code here.
Happy reading an until next time.
