Programming in Coffeescript book review
September 18, 2012 in Book Reviews
Programming in Coffeescript was a really good manual on coffeescript. The book is targeted at programmers without any familiarity with Coffeescript, but each topic was deeply covered which made it a fantastic way to learn the Coffeescript language since it wasn’t just introductory but covered everything in depth. This is definitely a book you can spend hours and hours reading and re-reading to fully understand everything.
The topics were presented with great examples that taught each concept simply and directly. The author adroitly walks the fine line between being succinct and still explaining the concept clearly enough with a sufficient number of examples of actual code and not just conceptual discussion.
I would highly recommend this book as THE book to use to learn Coffeescript
