# 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 ( 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( have kindly offered to sponsor the group this month, so free food will be provided after the talk.
