I've dabbled in coffeescript before, but "A sip of coffeescript" really helped take me to the next level. I love that they tied it in to some of the previous codeschool jQuery courses as it really helped with the "real-world" aspect of Coffeescript implementation. Fantastically done course, these just keep getting better and better! Bravo Codeschool.
I couldn't think of an appropriate title for this review. It's a little late now, but maybe I went too front-heavy with the bacon-wrapped enchiladas, I don't know. What I DO know, though, is that this course is a keeper. Fun Fact: I went to work the next day and fired off 50 lines of CoffeeScript code to set up a feature that took almost 200 lines of JS on one of our other sites. Double-whammy: I had literally never written a line of JS code prior to running through the jQuery Air course 4 days prior. That's about as high an endorsement as I can think of for any training/tutorial/course.
