Hack Reactor - Week 3 Day 4 & 5

Happy New Year!

Day 4 was New Year’s day and we had the day off.

But today, we were back at it today full bore.

Highlights of the day:

Presentation of Affordable Housing

Today I gave my lightning talk on Affordable Housing. Here is my deck if you want to check it out:

Coffee Script

Coffee Script is programming language that compiles into Javascript. The syntax is very different, but is very clearly shorter. We just started to use it today and we using it to build a Backbone application.

Here is some sample Javascript:

var example = function(a, b){
  return a + b;

And the same code in Coffeescript

example = (a, b)->
  a + b

This is just a small subset of what’s possible. Very interesting. I’ll have to see how I like it as I use it more, but so far so good.
