# Introduction To CoffeeScript

This month we will be taking a glimpse into CoffeeScript, a little language that compiles into JavaScript, with Adam Holt.

Recently announced as a default in Rails 3.1, we will look at general syntax and usage as well as more complex features such as function binding, splats, array comprehension and destructuring assignments.

Adam (http://adamholt.co.uk) is a Ruby developer at On The Beach, likes hacking around with NoSQL databases, Functional programming languages and

all kinds of shiny new tech!

On The Beach(http://www.onthebeach.co.uk) have kindly offered to sponsor the group this month, so free food will be provided after the talk.
